Course description:

The course will cover basic concepts of shipbuilding, including a glossary and an introduction to the history of wooden shipbuilding in Mediterranean, from the Iron Age to the post-mediaeval period. Through significant examples, students will be introduced to the basic concepts of nautical archaeology, from surveying, to building a shipwreck database, assessing each site, developing a diagnostic of the overall situation, for a body of water or a region, developing prognostics, and action plans.

The theoretical part of the course workshop will be integrated through the fieldwork on the late 16th century shipwreck site in the bay of Suđurađ on the island of Šipan. The course figures as the introductory course for a series of courses dealing with specific arguments on the research, protection and preservation of maritime/nautical heritage.
