The NAS offers many different opportunities for you to get involved with the maritime heritage that surrounds us. From providing you with the skills to join a project or carry out a project of your own, to volunteering and conferences where you can hear speakers from around the world discussing the latest discoveries and innovations in maritime archaeology, to publishing in a world renowned journal there are many options to get involved.
