Summary

This is an abstract from the "Current Research and On Going Projects at the J Richard Steffy Ship Reconstruction Laboratory" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.

Ignored since long, the underwater cultural heritage of Portugal needs an assessment, an inventory, a diagnostic, and a set of policies for its study and protection. At the ShipLAB we believe that no policy towards the cultural heritage that does not include the population is bound to fail. This paper details our plans for the development of an underwater archaeology database for Portugal, and a set of management tools aiming at empowering and including the country's population.
