We plan initially run two Nautical Archaeology Society (NAS) courses – one and two day. The Nautical Archaeology Society is a world leader in providing courses in coastal and underwater maritime heritage. It is dedicated to advancing education in nautical archaeology at all levels. The NAS courses are recognized world wide and are often undertaken as part of the training at a number of Universities providing masters level Archaeology courses.
Introduction and Part 1 courses cover all the basics to develop a field worker teaching the basics of archaeology, site typology, 2 D and 3D survey methods, dry land and underwater practical sessions, Health and Safety, State Legislation, Project planning and how to undertake an archaeological project.
We can offer these and a number of part 3 advanced courses such as Traditional Boat Building, Ship and Boat Archaeology and Recording, Introductory to Marine Geophysical Survey and Ancient Technology in coracle and currach building.
Maritime Archaeologist Pat Tanner will continue to host International Archaeology Seminars in Baltimore focusing on traditional vessel types and construction methods.
Further courses will be developed using local sites for practical experience, liaising with the National Monuments Service and Universities.
