2013 Maritime Archaeology Field School
Saint Mary’s College of California (SMC) and the University of Rhode Island will be offering a joint Field School in Maritime Archaeology in Bermuda during July 2013. This annual field school has been conducted in cooperation with the Bermuda Maritime Museum since 1999. The field school is a research-based learning experience that exposes students to a variety of activities including archival research, artifact conservation, archaeological survey, and underwater excavation and documentation of historic shipwrecks. The field school will be conducted from July 15 to August 8, 2013. Training leading to AAUS qualification as a Scientific Diver-in-Training will be provided in advance of departure for Bermuda. Classroom work focused on maritime history and maritime archaeological field methods will comprise week one of the field school. Underwater research and documentation of 16th and 17th century shipwrecks will be conducted in Bermuda during the remaining weeks.

2013 Scientific Dive Course – FHL
The University of Washington (UW) Friday Harbor Laboratories (FHL) will conduct its annual short intensive scientific dive course from August 12 through August 25th, 2013. This is a two-week non-credit workshop designed to provide the basic requirements for becoming certified as a scientific diver according to AAUS standards. It includes First Aid/CPR/Oxygen for SCUBA emergencies training and Rescue diver certification. Students will learn some basic techniques used by scientists conducting subtidal research at FHL and will gain experience in data collection underwater. The San Juan Islands are a challenging and species-rich dive destination.
Course fees will include: room & board at FHL, DAN and PADI certification cards, and Rescue training e-learning materials. This course is open to scientists and students at any level of study who meet the requirements for AAUS certification: a minimum of 20 logged dives and medical clearance. It is ideal for undergraduates and graduate students who have achieved an advanced level of recreational diving and aim to pursue subtidal research in the near future. Students must provide all their own gear (except for SCUBA cylinders) appropriate for cold water and meeting UW diving safety regulations.
