ANTH 4095/6095

Underwater Archaeology
Image or Flier:
Credit Hours:

This introductory survey-level course in the field of modern underwater archaeology includes a study of prehistoric and early “historic” archaeological sites in Europe and North America. It will focus on ancient and indigenous watercraft as well as inundated habitation/specialized sites. This is not a course in historic shipwreck archaeology.

When this course is taught as a split level, additional requirements for graduate students: The graduate students will write a professional-level project paper on an underwater research subject. They will gather data (individually or as a team) to put in these individual reports. Depending on the project, undergraduate students might be able to serve as research assistants for the graduate students.
