Maritime Archaeologyonline course
Maritime archaeology is a sub-discipline of the general field of archaeology and is relatively a newcomer. Maritime archaeology, in its most basic form, is the study of material culture related to human interaction with the water. Travel by water has been practiced throughout the history of the humankind to satisfy specific demands, e.g., social-economic, political, military, or a combination of exploration and curiosity. Maritime archaeology firmly stands within the interdisciplinary tradition of archaeology as such, with a specific maritime focus. The traditional definition of “maritime” as dealing only with the sea and specifically shipwrecks is not valid anymore. In addition, the specific term is not only limited to the study of wet sites. Maritime archaeology is much wider including the study of constructions and remains of human activity, on land and underwater.
The course is open to everyone, but is particularly aimed at students in archaeology, history and anthropology.
