The Nautical Archaeology Society holds its annual conference over the weekend of 2/3 November, in Portsmouth.
Non-members are welcome to attend the event, known for its erudite presentations and its networking opportunities.
Talks, given on the Saturday, will include Dr Johan Rönnby of Sweden’s Södertörn University, on ‘Mars the Miraculous’, and Dr Damien Robinson, of the Oxford Centre for Maritime Archaeology, on Ship 43 and the graveyard in the central basin of Thonis-Heracleion, Egypt.
The conference, staged at the University of Portsmouth’s Langstone Campus, will also feature exhibitors, a Project Poster display, the annual Adopt-A-Wreck Award, Keith Muckelroy Award and the NAS Annual General Meeting.
Those who stay for Sunday will be able to take a VIP tour of the new Mary Rose Museum, in the company of Christopher Dobbs, NAS Vice President.
