Based at the Bermuda Maritime Museum, this diving-intensive field school teaches students how to survey, document, map and excavate historic shipwrecks. Participants will have a chance to examine a variety of shipwrecks from the 16th - 19th centuries; to undertake systematic archaeological surveys of the reef systems; and to document, map and test excavate an English shipwreck from the late 18th / early 19th century. Students who are able to scuba dive get the most out of the course.
