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.
Aleck Tan, an ACUA Graduate Student Associate member, provides a thoughtful and thought provoking blog about being an Asian American in underwater archaeology. She also addresses the myths and importance of diversity and includes a great reference list of sources addressing these issues. Read all about it!
Ethics, respect, diversity and equality are the core principles around which we should all strive to lead our professional and personal lives. The ACUA strongly encourages all professional organizations to promote ethical principles, non-discrimination and anti-harassment policies among their memberships.
