The Centre for Maritime Archaeology (CMA) at the University of Southampton has carried out lots of exciting projects relating to ports and the maritime past. The CMA hosts a team of specialists who undertake research into ancient shipwrecks of Roman and Medieval trade, they explore ports and harbours within and beyond the Mediterranean shores, along the Red Sea coast and within the Indian Ocean. They investigate submerged landscapes and deploy the latest remote sensing survey equipment to interrogate the sea floor. Not only does the CMA conduct cutting edge research, it also offers tuition at undergraduate and graduate level in maritime archaeology. The highly successful and popular Masters programme offers a breadth of teaching that is driven by the research conducted by our staff.
