Ships: Research, Recording and Reconstruction, open for external applications

External applications are now open for the 2014 Flinders University Maritime Archaeology topic

Ships: Research, Recording and Reconstruction, scheduled from 22-26 September 2014.

This topic provides students with the theoretical and practical training necessary for researching ships and ship construction. Students will develop an in-depth knowledge of recording, representing and interpreting ship construction. Students should expect to learn nautical terminology, the basic components of a ship and activities aboard, principles of ship construction and rigging, procedures for taking and drafting ship lines and construction plans, hull analysis, procedures for graphic representation of hulls and principles of reconstructing ships.  This topic is challenging, demanding and hands-on; students are expected to participate fully in problem-solving exercises.

This topic will be taught in the intensive mode (one week) and SCUBA diving qualifications are not required for participation

The course is open to non-Flinders student for the cost of tuition. Credit for the course may be applied to home universities. This is aso a great opportunity for current practicing professionals interested in staff development training.
