Advanced Underwater Archaeology Course 2012


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.

Archaeologists from ICUA and guest lecturers will conduct theoretical lessons, complemented by optional courses in specialty diving according to the requirements of the Scuba Schools International (SSI) system.

Practical instruction will take place in the frame of underwater archaeological researches of ancient shipwrecks in the Pula environs, in order to prepare the participants to actively take part as a regular member of an underwater archaeological excavations team.
