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.
