The Nautical Archaeology Society is a not for profit organisation and a registered charity in England and Scotland.
Our charitable objectives are to involve as many people as possible from all around the world in our maritime heritage.

This we do by a variety or mechanisms from schools outreach activities like after-school clubs; free courses for disadvantaged groups and by subsidising events that we believe will
enhance peoples lives and improve the prospects for our non-renewable cultural heritage.

Please donate to the NAS to help support our work, striving to improve the awareness and the experiences of people, through the fun and excitement that is nautical archaeology.
