About the course
Over the centuries, a variety of motives have led people to develop their relationship with the sea. At times, the sea served as protection creating an impassable barrier, while at others it offered a major medium for travel and trade, becoming a powerful driving force for progress. In many ways, sea-related activities helped shape the course of human history. That is why maritime studies, through the lens of underwater archaeology, provide a crucial element in gaining a deeper understanding of our history.
Maritime archaeology is an archaeological subdiscipline that deals with the remnants of human activity from the past, found in the sea, interconnected waterways and lakes, as well as in adjacent territories. Marine archaeological evidence reflects traces of material culture, both underwater and on the surface.
This online course was created in the "Archaeological Research" scientific and educational center of Sevastopol State University. It draws on the experience and expertise gained from implementing the only master's program in Russia focusing on maritime archaeology in 2018–2020
You will know
  • The history of maritime archaeology, its goals and objectives
  • Modern views and assessment of maritime archaeology methodological framework
  • Historical stages and patterns in marine studies
You will learn
  • To analyze and outline the history of maritime archaeology
  • To draw chronological parallels between historical processes
  • To determine historical information needed to solve a particular problem, and to select relevant sources
  • To make reasonable judgments about controversial issues in marine archaeology
Who is the course for?
The course is designed for a broad audience: high school students thinking about their future career, university students moving on to their master's degree, research scientists, anyone who is excited to dive into the universe of underwater archaeology.
The videos are in English, so participants will need a sufficient level of English to complete the course

It sure must be great to have your own metal detector and a degree in science, but even if you don't, that shouldn't stop you from taking part in an underwater archaeological expedition!

Which factors limit the time that a diver spends underwater?
Great!
Qualifications and wetsuits are things that help you become an excellent diver, while limited air supply and having to rest between dives are the key restrictions

Which of the following CANNOT be used for underwater orientation without special equipment?
That's a tricky question. It might surprise you, but you can actually use a compass and stretched lines to orientate yourself underwater. You'll learn about it later in the course

Why can't scuba divers ascend too quickly from a dive?
It's totally fine if it takes you several dives to explore the underwater world. Decompression sickness is an extremely dangerous condition. That's why it's so important to follow safety rules

О рекламе
Как вы видите, на Лекториуме практически нет рекламы.
Мы считаем, что создание контента — лучший способ продвижения. Лучше записать отличную конференцию в рамках программы Медиагранты и повесить на нее титр спонсора, чем вешать растяжки и плакаты.

Поэтому мы не любим баннеры и размещаем их разве что в исключительных случаях. Однако, если вас это не останавливает — напишите нам письмо на office@lektorium.tv.
