CLAS3F75: Archaeological Practicum, Maritime Heritage of Southeast Sicily.
Approx. dates: June 18 – July 25, 2022.

Project ‘U Mari (“the sea” in local Sicilian dialect) explores the maritime heritage of southeast Sicily, examining millennia of connections across the Mediterranean. Participants study artifacts from shipwrecks in the area, conduct underwater survey at the ancient fishing port of Vendicari, and document the material culture and traditions of tuna fishing and contemporary voyages, considering how best to preserve and engage the public with this diverse maritime past. Students earn one full credit at the 3rd-year level in tandem with scuba certification. For information and application contact Dr. Elizabeth Greene, Department of Classics, egreene@brocku.ca
