The Idea
Just because we're not out diving or doing fieldwork, doesn't mean that the archaeological work stops. As NAS members know from their initial training, after the fieldwork comes the real work: writing up results and sharing it with other people.

While we're all stuck at home, now is the perfect time to catch up on all that paperwork and let the outside world known what you've been doing on your community maritime archaeology project. 

To make it easy to showcase projects both past and present, we've set up a google map that anyone can contribute to. It will make a great resource for everyone to explore. And hopefully we'll get more people active in maritime archaeology projects when life returns to normal!

How to Contribute
To contribute to the map, please email [email protected] and we'll give you editing rights to the map. Anyone can add to the map, whether they are a NAS member or not. We just want to help share all the great work that is being done by volunteer archaeologists around the country.

Have a look at the existing entries on the map for guidance on what to include:

  • Project Location (as accurate as possible, as long as that does not threaten a vulnerable site)
  • Group/Project Name
  • A brief description of the project
  • A photo
  • Links to websites, blogs, online reports, facebook page, twitter feed etc...

If you would like to share your report but don't have it online, email it to us and we can host it on the NAS website so that others can read about your hard work.
