The Nautical Archaeology Society offers award winning training in archaeology along the British coastline, and in our lakes, rivers and waterways. The training programme is open to students of all ages, backgrounds and levels of expertise. From March 2013 you can undertake the first two levels of the programme via the society’s ELearning programme in the comfort of your own home.
There are five levels to the programme and after completion, students can get involved with various projects and field schools around the world. They can also become a member of the society, join the Adopt-a-Wreck scheme or the Big Anchor Project, and perhaps become a volunteer for the society. If participants are scuba divers then they might want to join in on one of the society’s Protected Wreck Days.
The society is also hosting Shipwreck Explorers Day on Sunday 18th August. Activities will include learning to draw and survey like an archaeologist. What’s more, visitors can have a go at handling real life artefacts from an underwater site and from around the Wharf.
