UNESCO UNITWIN Network for Underwater Archaeology

 

The UNITWIN Network of Underwater Archaeology collects the most prestigious educational and research programmes of the discipline. If you are interested in archaeology and want to specialize in underwater cultural heritage, here you have a list of the members of this Network and their programmes.

 

UNESCO has for a long term endeavored to foster underwater archaeology, research and capacity building in the framework of its 2001 Convention. The 2001 Convention on the protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage improves the protection and research of submerged archaeological sites.

Now UNESCO has established a new University Twinning Programme (Unitwin) for Underwater Archaeology. It shall bring together universities teaching underwater archaeology and increase their cooperation.

About UNITWIN Network

The UNITWIN Network for Underwater Archaeology aims to increase capacity in the participating countries through international cooperation. It will  enhance the protection of and research into, underwater cultural heritage, by connecting in a formal way universities and professional training institutions working in the field of underwater archaeology. It  will act as a bridge between the academic world, civil society, local communities, research and policy-makers.
