Dr Spooner at Saxonia Reef in Monte Cristi Bay

  Field School Objectives & Methodology:   

The objectives for the 2016 season, are to survey a square mile in the bay to locate, the remains of the ships hull. The Team will also work in the lab recording the artefacts already recovered using the specially designed databases. For the diving team, their time will be split between diving days and recording days on an equal basis.

During the diving days, the team will measure and record the remaining artefacts and archaeological training will be given on survey equipment and various relevant archaeological lectures will also be run, weather and time permitting.

This is a very active field school, with as much diving as we can do. All team members will be expected to muck in and take active part in all tasks. This is not a beach holiday.
