Within the NAS you can assist in the search for evidence of past marine activities in seas, rivers, lakes or on land. You can help survey historic wrecks and other archaeological sites as well as receive training in underwater archaeological techniques. And why not help record and publish your new discoveries or help reconstruct and test early water-borne craft. The NAS also organises conferences and lectures to clubs and societies. Importantly you choose your own involvement based on time available and level of expertise or simply sit back and read about current activities in the NAS newsletter or academic journal.
