2019 Field School in Maritime Archaeology

Interested in Maritime Archaeology? Looking for a field school or a hands-on experience that takes you up close with historic wrecks and maritime sites?

Be part of the dig! Join us for our 2019 summer field school from Aug 5 – 9th.

SEAMAHP in collaboration with Massachusetts BUAR will be running a hands-on archaeological dig into the past, as an accredited course through Salem State University (SSU). The course will cover methods and practice of archaeological research, survey and documentation of historic shipwreck(s) and maritime site(s) on the shores north of Boston. In addition to methodological training and academic lectures, participants will get valuable experience with all aspects of fieldwork in a dynamic environment on the seashore.

Last year we began investigating a steamship wreck on Little Misery Island near Salem. We’ll be delving into the site again this summer, ferrying out to the island each day the tide allows.

Registration is now open! at www.salemstate.edu/summer. Look for HST 305-91 “Topics in Public Archaeology” (class #1760).
