Course

This course is aimed at students and people interested in archaeology who wish to participate in the course this exciting underwater archaeology in Mazarrón, located in Murcia (Spain). You will be able to study first hand the exploration and techniques used in underwater archaeology and the model of Phoenician trade during protohistory and the Iberian period.

In CEPOAT we strongly believe in the proper education of our students, through our training.  We offer introductory courses and also perform underwater archaeeological works, an area of work that is not much addressed in curriculums and it is as important in Spain as it is to study the Mediterranean in the antiquity.

This course aims to train the students of History and Archeology in the field of underwater archeology. To achieve this we have a specialized training programme. To be accepted you must have a degree in History, you also must have the titles of professional diving to be able to work at this level. In order to learn these techniques you must have, at least, basic diving training. We propose a double training.  In the first instance,  by obtaining the title FEDAS B1E (for those who do not have it ) and in a second phase of the course through training in underwater archaeology. Those who already have a degree will do the learning of underwater archaeology from day one.

The FEDAS or PADI certification is not comparable  or validated with professional diving, but it is the minimum requirement to participe in this course.

This dual training allows adequate and initial training for students in history and archaeology, while for those who are not prepared but already have these degrees, this course initiates them and transmits the importance of underwater archaeology within the archaeological heritage.

Evidently the other path of training is the Professional Diver’s Degree imparted in some Autonomous Communities, but they also need to be an underwater archaeologist from the History or Archaeology degree.

Another way to get the Professional Diver tittle is through  some autonomic communities, but in order to have a complete formation in this field you ought to be a certified as a  sub-acuatical archaeologist with a degree of History and Archaeology.

Introduction to the project:
The municipality of Mazarrón is one of the localities of world reference on the underwater archeology in relation to the Phoenician world by all known.

The discovery of the Phoenician ship in 1988 and its excavation in successive years has deeply marked the municipality. Its importance in antiquity comes to light today in the studies on present and future underwater archeology and make us consider the course in Mazarron as a focus and point of work of utmost importance for contact with the Phoenician World.

Objectives:

In the work we develop from CEPOAT is the formation and in this case as in others, the training in Underwater Archaeology of the Phoenician World is fundamental, on the one hand as regards the relationship of CEPOAT with the Old World in general but above all with the relationship of CEPOAT with the Region of Murcia, as we have the opportunity to train great specialists in these topics of great interest to the scientific community.

Methodology:

This course is aimed at those who already have training in diving as well as those who do not. The course will start from a training course in diving during the first days for those students without diving knowledge and where they can obtain the B1E degree from the Spanish Federation of Underwater Activities, while those students who already have such training can begin the prospecting and study. Both teams will join up during the second part of the course where we can see the methodology  used underwater archaeology, the programmed activities of previous studies, prospecting and drawing of specific areas of the coast of Mazarrón.


This will consist of two morning dives and theory through lectures / conferences and preparation of materials in the evenings.
