Club Members learn about Archaeology..

Several members of the Club were amongst 21 divers who gathered, under the auspices of Preserve Our Wrecks, to learn about Nautical Archaeology today. The two-day course will teach basic survey techniques and acquaint the students with legal issues relating to the discipline and other essential topics. Exercises today included detective work on artifacts to try and establish their origins and ancestry, and the circumstances of the vessel to which they related, and instruction in survey skills culminating in an underwater session in the pool.
