Published twice a year, the IJNA is a full colour publication both online and in print, with each issue containing peer-reviewed original articles, notes and book reviews. IJNA addresses the theory and practice of archaeology and related academic disciplines, such as cultural geography, history, ethnography, oceanography and anthropology, which investigate human associations with water and waterborne craft of all periods throughout the world, on seas and inland waters. Aiming to encourage a fuller understanding of the maritime past within its wider context, IJNA keeps readers abreast of the latest discoveries, new interpretations and theoretical approaches. 50 Years of the IJNA Roundtable Discussion at NAS Conference 2021 Aims and Scope The journal covers all aspects of the study of nautical archaeology, exploring the use and development of water transport, maritime trade, coastal resource use, and the infrastructures that supported these activities from prehistory to the recent past. The material covered includes both terrestrial and underwater sites related to seas and inland waterways and ranges from shipwreck studies to maritime landscapes. The journal aims to encourage a broad appreciation and understanding of the social impact of our maritime past in its wider cultural context. IJNA keeps readers abreast of the latest discoveries, excavations, techniques, and theoretical approaches. Coverage includes: Archaeological evidence for ships and boats, navigation and trade Survey and excavation of sites in rivers, lakes and the sea Harbours and other coastal sites Artefact studies Legislation and cultural heritage management Theoretical approaches The IJNA is published online as soon as they are available, ahead of the print issues, and NAS members who subscribe to IJNA have online access to this material, as well as to the current issue and all back issues. The hard-copy print run occurs twice a year - in the spring and the autumn. ------- Dr Athena Trakadas - IJNA Editor We are excited to welcome Dr Athena Trakadas as the new editor of the International Journal of Nautical Archaeology. Athena has taken over from Miranda Richardson, who was the the editor of the journal between 2011 and 2021 Athena can be contacted on: [email protected] ----------- Dr Paula Martin - IJNA Book Reviews Editor Paula can be contacted on [email protected] ----------- Ethical Statement IJNA welcomes submissions from all persons engaged in archaeology with a maritime/nautical relevance anywhere in the world. However, as publication in a refereed journal gives long-term academic respectability to any material published, the Editor asks for clear information to be provided about how surveys and excavations were financed, and the location, conservation and long-term curation of all finds, and of the paper and digital archive. The Editor expects authors to have worked within the principles laid down in the Annex to the 2001 UNESCO Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage. These include Rule 1. ‘The protection of underwater cultural heritage through in situ preservation shall be considered as the first option’; Rule 2. ‘The commercial exploitation of underwater cultural heritage for trade or speculation or its irretrievable dispersal is fundamentally incompatible with the protection and proper management of underwater cultural heritage. Underwater cultural heritage shall not be traded, sold, bought or bartered as commercial goods.’ Authors must provide proof to the editor that they have permission to use any material for which they do not hold copyright (generally images). Research students must provide evidence of the approval of their supervisor(s). IJNA is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics, and the Editor aims to work according to its Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors (http://www.publicationethics.org/).

They are broadcast live, online, are interactive, free to watch and even recorded to the NAS YouTube Channel so you can watch them again and again. More on the IJNA Webinar Series can be found here IJNA Webinar No.1: The Archaeology of World War Battleships The first live IJNA Webinar took place on Wednesday 23rd January at 10.00 (London), 11.00 (Paris), 19.00 (Toyko) and 21.00 (Sydney) on "The Archaeology of World War Battleships". The webinar was hosted by the IJNA Editor, Miranda Richardson and IJNA Advisory Editor, Dr Jun Kimura. Panel members will include recent IJNA authors, Dr Innes McCartney, Kieran Hosty and Yumiko Nakanishi (who was unable to attend at the last minute). The 100 viewers were able to ask questions of the panel members. ------- The journal is supported by the Honor Frost Foundation The Honor Frost Foundation supports the IJNA/HFF Open Access Award provides the winning IJNA article with a year of free open access on the Wiley Online Book Store. This means that those who do not have a subscription to the IJNA will be able to access and download the winning article for free. ------- Open Access Content Morgawr: an experimental Bronze Age‐type sewn‐plank craft based on the Ferriby boats. International Journal of Nautical Archaeology, Volume 43, Issue 2. First published: 17 April 2014 Abstract: This paper reports on the construction of a full‐scale Bronze Age‐type sewn‐plank boat based on the Ferriby boats. The boat, which was named Morgawr, was constructed in the National Maritime Museum Cornwall in Falmouth, England, during 2012 and the first months of 2013, as part of a larger exhibition in the museum. This paper provides the background and context of the project, describes the process of building the craft, and reflects in particular on differences between Morgawr and the ‘hypothetical reconstruction of a complete sewn‐plank boat’ published in 1990 by Ted Wright and John Coates which formed the basis for this project. ------- A Portuguese East Indiaman from the 1502–1503 Fleet of Vasco da Gama off Al Hallaniyah Island, Oman: an interim report, by David L. Mearns, David Parham, Bruno Frohlich. International Journal of Nautical Archaeology, Volume 45, Issue 2. First published: 14 March 2016 Abstract: Two Portuguese naus from Vasco da Gama's second voyage to India, left behind to disrupt maritime trade between India and the Red Sea, were wrecked in May 1503 off the north‐eastern coast of Al Hallaniyah Island, Oman. The ships, Esmeralda and São Pedro, had been commanded by da Gama's maternal uncles, Vicente and Brás Sodré, respectively. A detailed study and scientific analysis of an artefact assemblage recovered during archaeological excavations conducted in Al Hallaniyah in 2013 and 2014 confirms the location of an early 16th‐century Portuguese wreck‐site, initially discovered in 1998. Esmeralda is proposed as the probable source of the remaining, un‐salved wreckage. ------- From Boatyard to Museum: 3D laser scanning and digital modelling of the Qatar Museums watercraft collection, Doha, Qatar, by John P. Cooper, Andrew Wetherelt, Chiara Zazzaro, Matthew Eyre. International Journal of Nautical Archaeology. First published online: 16 May 2018 Abstract: This article presents the results of a project to 3D laser scan and digitally model 14 watercraft from the Qatar Museums collection, comprising a range of regional vessels: most had not been surveyed previously. The project used the resulting point clouds generated 2D naval lines and orthographic records of the vessels in their current condition, and photorealistic 3D digital models for gallery display. This case study provides illustrative examples of the intermediate stages and final outputs. It assesses the pros and cons of 3D laser scanning as a survey technology for nautical scholars in terms of the time, cost, and skillset, as well as logistical considerations. It also compares the accuracy of traditional hand survey methods. ------- Honor Frost Foundation Open Access Prize (2016-2018) The IJNA/HFF Open Access Award was established in 2016 to give an article the benefit of Open Access, without the cost. Open access is a feature by which internet users can read and download a journal article without being a subscriber or paying for it individually. This makes the research available to a larger audience, which is beneficial to both readers and researchers alike. The award granted Open Access for the article on the Wiley Online Library for one year.
