Cultivating the Next Generation of Maritime Archaeologists: An Anglo/American Approach

Author(s): Ian M Cundy; Mark W Holley

Year: 2013

Summary

For the past two years the Nautical Archaeology Society (NAS) in the UK, in partnership with the underwater archaeology program at Northwestern Michigan College (NMC) in the USA, has run a field school in and around Lake Michigan focusing on maritime archaeology.  These events have drawn students from across North America and Europe by providing a wide range of specialty training courses not found elsewhere in the region.  A substantial amount of original research has been generated from these field schools illuminating the maritime history of this region.  The diversity of the Anglo/American teaching approach, combining instructors from both countries, has been extremely popular with students and allows for a multi-faceted discussion of international co-operation towards education and training in the field of maritime archaeology.
