Advanced Underwater Archaeology Course 2013


Within the framework of its activities for the capacity-building and the enhancement of regional cooperation on the safeguarding of underwater cultural heritage, the International Centre for Underwater Archaeology in Zadar (ICUA) is organising this advanced course with the support of the UNESCO Office in Venice.

The course will consist of theoretical and practical (hands on) instructions in the techniques of underwater archaeological excavation, data processing and use of new technologies in underwater documentation. Archaeologists from ICUA and guest lecturers will conduct theoretical lessons, complemented by optional courses in specialty diving according to the requirements of the SSI or PADI system. Practical instruction will take place in the frame of underwater archaeological researches of ancient shipwrecks in Ližnjan, Pula environs, in order to prepare the participants to actively take part as a regular member of an underwater archaeological excavations team.

The course’s expected beneficiaries are archaeologists who have diving experience and at least some basic practical underwater archaeology experience. The course is designed to develop advanced skills and experience in underwater archaeological work and project planning basics.
