The course should be geared for a general, non-anthropology major, lower division student audience. The course is designed to investigate and understand fundamental concepts and questions answerable through anthropology and archaeology, explored through a range of case studies intended to highlight both what exists under the sea and what we can learn from our tumultuous history with it.
Lectures, readings and assignments should be appropriately aimed for lower division students. The course meets Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:15-6:35 in the Fall 2013, scheduled through University College. The course offering will be dependent on sufficient enrollment.
Images of our sunken past – shipwrecks loaded with treasure, mysterious sunken cities, encounters with terrible sea creatures – surround us, but how much do we actually know about what lies beneath the sea Exploring the watery world through the lenses of anthropology and archaeology allows us to interrogate the evidence of the past in ways that provide us with so much more than just treasure” from shipwrecks – we can ask questions about and critically examine what we know concerning population movements; technology; globalization; warfare; human triumph, suffering, and even death; cultural interactions; and about the paths of history that have brought us to where we are now. Informative for both anthropology majors and non-majors alike, this course is designed to investigate and understand fundamental concepts and questions answerable through anthropology and archaeology, explored through a range of case studies intended to highlight both what exists under the sea and what we can learn from our tumultuous history with it.

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.
Dates: July 23-August 2
Cost: $1000 (optional university credit available for additional fee)
Application Deadline: May 1

This intensive course will be from June 20-July 3 in beautiful southern Albania.
Dates: June 20-July3
Application Deadline: May 1
