2022 Field School @ SSU

Be part of the dig! Join us for our summer field school next July, 2022.

SEAMAHP in collaboration with MBUAR will be running a hands-on archaeological dig of a foreshore shipwreck, as an accredited course through Salem State University (SSU) in Massachusetts.

Our research is ongoing on a steamship wreck  believed to be the City of Rockland on Little Misery Island near Salem. We’ll be delving into the site again next summer, ferrying out to the island each day the tide allows.

Registration will be open in Spring 2022! at http://www.salemstate.edu/summer.
