Welcome

WELCOME TO THE HOME OF THE ACUA

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.
