I have been diving for the past few years with the Anglo-Danish Maritime Archaeological Team (ADMAT). We have been conducting archaeological excavation of a French armed merchantman which sank on the north coast of the Dominican Republice in the 1720's. This is hands-on archaeological work excavating, recording, recovering, conserving and documenting artifacts from the wreck. Artifacts being recovered include: anchors, cannon, swivel-cannon, faienceware pottery, floor tiles, granite blocks, clay pipes, pewter plate, ships tackle, etc. We have also discovereed another wreck with similar cargo on a small uninhabited island which we will begin excavating in 2011. All work is legally performed under license from the Dominican Government.
We are looking for divers interested in learning about and performing maritime archaeology. Certifications available: Underwater Survey Diver (Arch.), Proton Magnetometer, Search and Recovery.
Next field school: January 2010.
