Community Involvement in the Management of Submerged Cultural Resources on Lake Champlain

Summary

This is an abstract from the "Shipwrecks and the Public: Getting People Engaged with their Maritime History" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.

During the summer of 2018 the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum (LCMM) began an initiative to involve the local avocational dive community in the management of the cultural resources of Lake Champlain.  Through the support of a National Maritime Heritage Grant, LCMM archaeologists began the process of training a group of avocational divers in basic documentation and underwater photogrammetry skills with the long range goal of further involvement of those divers in archaeological projects.  This paper presents the results from the first of four training sessions to be conducted for this program.
