13th International Symposium on Boat and Ship Archaeology

On 8.-12. October the 13th International Symposium on Boat and Ship Archaeology (ISBSA) was held in Amsterdam, on naval premises next to the Dutch Maritime Museum. Aside from meeting friends & colleagues, one highlight was the excursion to the BATAVIA (1628) reconstruction in Lelystad. On this principle international conference – taking place only every three years at varying venues – new research on shipwrecks from all over the world and from all periods is presented. I contributed to the poster session with a case study from Bremen, introducing and re-evaluating three distinctively constructed shipwrecks from high/late medieval times. The poster can be downloaded in full resolution. A more detailed article on these finds will appear in print in the ISBSA proceedings.

    Daniel, any idea how many papers were presented in 2012? I’ve yet to attain a copy of the proceedings.

    Hi Dan, I don’t know the exact number of papers, but there were many, definitely more than 50. The proceedings are not published yet and I haven’t heard any news from the editor.
