Book your place now! The Australasian Institute for Maritime Archaeology will be offering an "Introduction to Maritime Archaeology" (Part 1) training course to be held on June 2-3, 2012. The course will be held on Flinders Campus in Room 112 (Arch Lab). This is an excellent opportunity for those interested in Maritime Archaeology to learn more about the field. The course is offered through the Australasian Institute for Maritime Archaeology (AIMA) and is internationally sanctioned through the UK-based Nautical Archaeology Society. It is one of a 4-part training scheme and consists of several lectures delivered over a 2-day period in a classroom environment. Subsequent parts in the series (to be offered at a later time, depending on interest) involve the application of acquired skills to actual sites underwater. The cost for the course is $120 for students and $165 for non-students. Upon completion of the Part 1 course, participants will be given membership to the Australasian Institute for Maritime Archaeology, will be registered with the Nautical Archaeology Society and will be cleared to volunteer on many professional maritime archaeological projects. More info can be found on the AIMA website: http://www.aima.iinet.net.au/frames/aimavtframe.html or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Spaces in the course are limited, so reserve yours now!
