The Ancient Mesambria Field School in Underwater Archaeology: Synergy Between Scientists, Students, and Managers in Benefit of Bulgarian Cultural Heritage
This is a poster submission presented at the 2020 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.
Since 2018, the Balkan Heritage Foundation, the Bulgarian Center for Underwater Archaeology, and the Institute for Field Research, are conducting an annual field school in underwater archaeology in Nesebar, ancient Mesambria, on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast. While teaching, studying, and training, the scientist and students are actually participating in ongoing field research projects and are contributing to the study, conservation, and promotion of underwater and maritime cultural heritage. Despite the numerous challenges, this model proves to be even more successful and sustainable than the commonplace state-funded projects for archaeological research of the maritime heritage of Nesebar, which is a UNESCO World Heritage town.
