On behalf of Professor Mark Staniforth
The Underwater Cultural Heritage in Vietnam project will offer internationally recognized Nautical Archaeology Society (NAS) training in Vietnam starting in November 2012. This project is designed to increase awareness at local, provincial and national levels about the extent and nature of Vietnam’s underwater and maritime cultural heritage and will help Vietnam to preserve and protect its underwater cultural heritage. NAS training will be provided free of charge to Vietnamese students, government agency personnel, archaeologists and others in order to raise awareness about underwater cultural heritage and maritime archaeology in Vietnam.
NAS training will be conducted at the Institute of Archaeology building in Hanoi mainly by members of the Bach Dang Battlefield Research group that has been working in Vietnam, in collaboration with the Vietnamese Institute of Archaeology (IA), for the last four years. The Bach Dang Battlefield Research group brings together a team from Vietnam, Australia, USA, Canada and Japan. This training project will capitalize on the presence in Vietnam of qualified and experienced maritime archaeologists on an annual basis for the Bach Dang Battlefield Research project. The training team includes Dr. Jun Kimura from the Asia Research Centre at Murdoch University, Dr Le Thi Lien from the Institute of Archaeology in Hanoi, Duong Bich Hanh from the UNESCO office in Hanoi and Professor Mark Staniforth from Monash University, amongst others.
