NAS 2017. Courses at ICUA

 

In 2017 ICUA Zadar will continue to organize Nautical Archaeology Society (NAS) courses. NAS courses aim to provide not just an introduction to the underwater archaeology, but also offer people a chance to build their skills and experience, allowing them to take part in projects and fieldwork around the world and perhaps to run their own projects.

The ICUA Team will conduct NAS courses during 2017 in Zadar County. Theoretical lectures will be conducted at the classroom in ICUA premises, and practical exercises will be conducted in the underwater environs of archaeological site Barbir in Sukošan near Zadar.
