Shipwrecks & Lost Lands

The Faculty of Humanities at the Avenue Campus hosted the second Annual Centre for Maritime Archaeology and Southampton Marine and Maritime Institute lecture on Thursday 22nd March.

Professor Jon Adams spoke to over 175 people in a packed out Lecture Theatre A, with representatives from 11 different Universities from across Europe, government agencies, leading heritage NGOs and museums, as well as staff and students.  The talk highlighted recent results from the Black Sea Maritime Archaeology Project, demonstrating the significance of this research and the world class expertise found within our Faculty and the international partners involved.   The project's international team is surveying the Bulgarian waters of the Black Sea where thousands of years ago large areas of land were inundated as the water level rose after the last Ice Age.
The talk coincided with Archaeology hosting a major  international workshop on capacity building in museum studies and heritage management for Egyptian institutions, as part of a €1million Erasmus+ grant. 

This lecture series and associated yearly workshops on heritage matters is emerging as key event within the society and governance theme, helping to showcase interdisciplinary research and leadership, and we look forward to hosting it  next year.
