1) The Illyrian Coastal Exploration Program would like to invite individuals interested in Mediterranean archaeology to apply for the 2013 underwater sciences field school. Set along the beautiful Dalmatian coast from July 8-21, the course spends one week each in Croatia and Montenegro. The field school is hosted by the International Centre for Underwater Archaeology in Zadar in collaboration with RPM Nautical Foundation and Transylvania University.
Students will work with the international team to learn the basics of underwater archaeology and coastal ecology. This course is suitable for beginners, especially undergraduates and masters students. Participants will learn survey methods, underwater recording, and help with ongoing research, as well as gain exposure to advanced methods through a visit to the deep sea research vessel Hercules to see its ROV system. The field school will dive on shipwrecks dating from the 4th century BC through modern times and students will get to see artifacts from many different periods. Though the field school is a general survey of maritime archaeology topics, students will leave with a good understanding of the fundamental theories and practical techniques used by archaeologists.
Dates: July 8-21
Cost: $2000 (optional university credit available for additional fee)
Application Deadline: May 1
2) A second ten day field school is offered through the Albanian Center for Marine Research from July 23-August 2. This field school will explore the fantastic shipwrecks of southern Albania, ranging from the 5th century BC through World War II. Albania offers untouched submerged cultural heritage due to the former communist government’s complete restriction on diving, making Albanian diving today similar to 1950s Mediterranean diving at large. Students and staff will be housed in small local hotel in Saranda, directly across from Corfu and near the Butrint UNESCO World Heritage Site. To promote maritime archaeology capacity in the region, preference will be given to student from the Balkan region.

ADMAT’s continuing survey and excavation of the French armed merchant ship we call the Tile Wreck starts on the 18th May 2013. The field school/volunteer project will be running from the 18th May to 1st June and the 20th July to 4th August . Location Monte Cristi north coast of the Dominican Republic. The Tile Wreck is believed to have been built in the 1690’s and sunk between 1720-1723. So far the section of the keel, keelson and lower hull remaining intact is about 24 meters long. There are still places on the Team so check out the web page www.admat.org.uk and sign up today!
ADMAT is working with Oficina Nacional de Patrimonio Cultural Subacuático (ONPCS) to conduct this maritime archaeological survey and excavation. For most of 2006 and in part in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010, this wreck was subject to an intensive archaeological survey and yielded over 2,000 artefacts, three iron cannons, three anchors and many important French faience ware sherds. Research in Paris led by Dr Francois Gendron and Dr. Jean Rosen from CNRS, has confirmed that the faience ware came from the “Nevers” foundry and dates the sinking of this wreck between 1720 and 1723. Applications are invited from divers, students, archaeologists and volunteers wishing to participate in the project, so this is a unique opportunity to have maximum hands on training and experience.
