Are you interested in ships and seafaring, history, early man, and archaeology? Covering nearly 3/4 of the Earth’s surface, water is the source of all life on our planet. Beneath the surface of our oceans, lakes, rivers, and wetlands lies a physical record of humankind preserved in prehistoric and historic shorelines, shipwrecks, inundated cities, harbors, and other traces of our past.

Dive into our web site and discover for yourself the many facets of underwater archaeology and the people and projects worldwide that are involved in this fascinating field.

Check out both of our latest blog posts. In “Perspective: Outgoing and Incoming ACUA Chairs“, Kim Faulk, ACUA Chair ex-officio, provides a discussion on “The Power of Vision and Leadership”, while incoming ACUA Chair Marco Meniketti shines light on “Positive Trends and New Challenges”. Thank you both for your hard work and commitment!

Our second new blog, “Nevertheless, We Persisted: ACUA and a Future of Mentorship” recaps a 2017 SHA Conference panel regarding gender equality in the fields of diving and archaeology. Big thanks to Jessica Keller, Amanda Evans, and all who contributed to this important conversation.

Our graduate student associate members, Arlice Marionneaux and Keilani Hernandez, have once again produced a great newsletter diving into the panel discussion  on the “ACUA’s Maritime Archaeology Job Market Survey” held during the 2017 SHA conference.  Check it out: Spring 2017 ACUAStudentNewsletter V5I1
