This year’s annual NAS Conference will bring together professional and amateur archaeologists to discuss and share ideas on maritime and nautical archaeology.
The conference being held at the UK University of Portsmouth’s Langstone Campus, will also stage numerous exhibitors, a Project Poster display, the annual Adopt-A-Wreck Award, Keith Muckelroy Award and the NAS Annual General Meeting.
Confirmed speakers for conference day include Dr Johan Rönnby, Södertörn University, who will talk on ‘Mars the Miraculous’. Dr Damien Robinson, Oxford Centre for Maritime Archaeology, will speak on Ship 43 and the graveyard in the central basin of Thonis-Heracleion, Egypt.
The NAS AGM will take place during the lunch break on the first day and all NAS members are welcome to attend. In the evening NAS members and delegates are invited to the conference evening social held nearby at a local pub.
The second day of the conference will see a VIP tour to the new Mary Rose Museum with NAS Vice President, Christopher Dobbs. Places are limited so book early.
The call for posters is now open for NAS members and can range from anything from shipbuilding to intertidal archaeology – contact Courtney Nimura for more information.
