From August 23 to September 5 I participated in an international workshop on underwater archaeology in Gdańsk, Poland. Methodology, legislation and preservational issues were discussed in terms of its their applicability within the framework of the UNESCO Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage. The practical component of the workshop was a short field training: An underwater archaeological survey of a newly discovered late medieval shipwreck with a well-preserved cargo of barrels of iron ore. On the 23rd the workshop participants were welcomed by the organisers Dr. Iwona Pomian and Dr. Waldemar Ossowski of the Polish Maritime Museum to a dinner in the Old City of Gdańsk. The team that was thus to work together was made up of under- and postgraduate students and junior archaeologists from Belgium, Germany, Lithuania, Norway, Poland and the Ukraine. To view the full report, please click here.
