This wednesday as part of an English Heritage funded project we will be holding a workshop to discuss different options open to archaeologists when considering the potential for submerged prehistoric remains.  The session will draw together practitioners from the UK, Denmark and the Netherlands to discuss their experiences and ideas on topics including; deposit modelling, predictive modelling and underwater direct evaluation (sampling/trenching etc).  Between 10-12 am the participants will be giving short presentations to highlight their thoughts.  These will be webcast live here and we welcome comments and participation from any web based viewers via twitter (#CMARG).  We’ll update the blog after the meeting with the thoughts and comments that emerge from the meeting.

I am a specialist in maritime prehistory and geoarchaeology who has been lucky enough to work on projects both on land and underwater across the globe: from survey and excavation in South, Central and North America, through to diver and ROV work in Europe.  Over the last five years my research interests have seen me work on a variety of Research Council funded projects whilst also developing close collaborative links with offshore industries.  I am a member of the Computational Modelling and the Sustainability Science Research Groups.  In addition, whilst the majority of my teaching is carried out in the Faculty of Humanities I also contribute to modules in the school of ocean and earth sciences, as well as broader university-wide multidisciplinary programmes.
