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.

Benchmarking and Job Skills in Underwater Archaeology

Jennifer McKinnon is tackling one of the main issues in underwater archaeology, job skills.  There has been little opportunity for the field of underwater archaeology, particularly in the US, to discuss university education, employer needs, and student expectations.Together with a team of ACUA members they conducted a multi-year survey to understand these needs. Check out Jen’s blog and download the slide show.
