Maritime Archaeology Field School


The 2004 Maritime Field School will be held during the non-teaching week in Semester 2 (around the end of September). Written assessment will be submitted by the end of semester.

Costs associated with the field school will be approximately Aus$500. For more information, contact the Head of the School of Anthropology, Archaeology & Sociology.

These are the preliminary details for the above course. Please read all of the details closely, since there are several pre-course requirements and payments.

Because this is a field-based course which requires us to book (and pay for) vehicles, boats and equipment in advance, it is essential that you if you are already enrolled, you confirm your interest or that you wish to withdraw, by emailing the course coordinator, as soon as possible.

Academic Prerequisites
Any JCU student with 12 points of first year subjects can enrol in AR2402/AR3402. The course is designed to allow non-archaeologists to participate.

Diving Prerequisites
Open Water dive certification - with 15 hours of dive time (logged). This will be sighted by the JCU Dive office at the Dive Register Test (see below).

Listing on the JCU Dive Register – (this is a JCU requirement and separate to the course, but there is no cost involved). A special session for this class will be held either in the several days before the field school – details to be advised.

Provisional Programme
Mon 27 September – Saturday 2 October (mid-semester break)

The general course description is available on the JCU website, but in brief the emphasis is on basic field methods for recording shipwrecks and other intertidal or submerged sites.
