2nd MIT Conference on Technology, Archaeology, and the Deep Sea

April 26-28, 2002

MIT announces its 2nd Conference on Technology, Archaeology, and the Deep Sea. Recent advances in deep submergence vehicles have made it possible to locate, document, sample, and excavate archaeological sites in waters ranging from 100 6,000 meters in depth. An earlier conference in 1999 laid the foundations for this new endeavor and generated significant excitement. Since then, deep water projects have continued among a wide array of researchers. We are still at the beginning of the development of archaeological methods and theoretical frameworks for remote and robotic operations in deep waters, operations that require a unique fusion of archaeology, engineering, and oceanography. This conference will convene experts in a focused setting to enable archaeological research in the deep sea to continue to evolve as a truly integrated scientific and social scientific practice.
