UNESCO UNITWIN Underwater Archaeology Network
As a member of UNITWIN, Texas A&M University is committed to share information and cooperate with the international community on all matters pertaining to nautical and maritime archaeology. This page is intended as a place where archaeologists can post their research and share their data and ideas with the community.
We are trying to create a compendium of shipwrecks, both excavated and destroyed by treasure hunters, in order to make the information gathered by our team available to everybody interested. Our first goal is to raise awareness to the destructive activity of treasure hunting and looting, and to propose a methodology to record, organize and share shipwreck data, with a basic focus on the history of wooden shipbuilding.
