Recent Deep Thoughts

It Belongs in a Museum! Does it really?

Does it really belong in a museum? Bert Ho tackles that question as museums, archaeologists, curators, and conservators struggle with limited space, less funding, and harder decisions.

News from the Caribbean

The confirmation of a French East India Company site, looking for two English ships, revisiting a site in St. Vincent, good news from Santo Domingo, and UCH training in the Caribbean. Lots happening. Read Jean-Sebastien’s blog.

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.

Core Principles

Ethics, respect, diversity and equity 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, anti-harassment, and anti-racist policies among their memberships.

Vision Statement

The ACUA serves as an international advisory body on issues relating to underwater archaeology, conservation, and submerged cultural resources management. It is working to educate scholars, governments, sport divers, and the general public about underwater archaeology and the preservation of underwater resources.
