The International Committee on Archaeological Heritage Management is holding its Annual Conference in Salalah, Oman to present and discuss:
Archaeological Park as World Heritage Site -
A Management Strategy for the Future
This is specific call for abstracts for the session on Underwater Archaeology to be held at the ICAHM 2016 Conference Archaeological Park as World Heritage Site - Management Strategy for the Future, 2-5 May, Salalah, Oman.
Underwater archaeological sites can make truly significant contributions to human history. Sunken water-going vessels are time capsules filled with material evidence related to trade, warfare, migration, and technological development. All if this is often overshadowed in the public consciousness by fantasies of finding rich treasure. This session will look at recent underwater research around the world, with particular attention to African, Near Eastern, and Asian regions. It will showcase new analytical and technological approaches in ways that will increase understanding about the unique contributions that underwater sites can make to world heritage.
Your abstract must be 100-300 words in length. The submission deadline is March 21st.
