Training and Talks
Please check the Diary for a list of forthcoming training courses.
Much of the fieldwork used to collect information for the SHIPS Project is unmdertaken by local divers, researchers and enthusiasts so providing training is an important part of the work. We provide informal advice and guidance about what to do when you find something underwater but we can also provide formal training using the Nautical Archaeology Society (NAS) training scheme.
We can arrange training courses for groups, dive clubs and individual divers on a range of course levels from introduction to advanced specialist courses:
This is a one-day introduction to archaeology and maritime archaeology
