A Bit of History
The ACUA, and its predecessor organization the CUA, have a publishing history dating back to 1964. Our first publication was the landmark Diving Into the Past: Theories, Techniques, and Applications of Underwater Archaeology: The Proceedings of a Conference on Underwater Archaeology Sponsored by the Minnesota Historical Society, St. Paul, April 26-27, 1963. It was edited by June Drenning Holmquist and Ardis Hillman Wheeler. Subsequently, the conference Proceedings were published annually from 1978-2000.

In 2007, the ACUA recommitted itself to publishing the Proceedings. In 2008, we added a full-color calendar using award-winning photographs from the annual Archaeological Photo Competition.
