Marine Survey Training Course for Archaeologists

Training Course, Feedback and Future Development. Project 7376

By Michael J. Grant, Justin K. Dix, Fraser Sturt

In January 2017 a marine survey training pilot course, commissioned by Historic England (Project 7376) was designed and run by COARS, University of Southampton, at the National Oceanographic Centre. This project will build upon the January 2015 pilot course (project 6205) by delivering training to develop a broader range of skills in marine survey techniques.

Feedback from course participants has indicated that this training course was a success with all attendees who felt they were better informed to advise and / or oversee marine archaeological investigations utilising marine geophysical techniques. The feedback from the training course indicate that it is meeting a training, and capacity building, requirement within the heritage sector and there is demand for it to be offered again at a later date.

Historic England commissioned experts from University of Southampton to prepare the report.
