Students travel back in time as they explore the field of maritime archaeology. Maritime archaeology is the study of past human cultures with an emphasis on how humans interacted with the world's oceans, lakes, and river systems. While maritime archaeology is best known for its focus on shipwrecks, it is really the study of everything connected to seafaring.
