Graveyard of Atlantic Museum Offers Shipwreck Archeology Workshop
Students in grades eight and higher are eligible

For the last three years, the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum has offered students an opportunity to apply what they've learned in math, science, social studies, English and history to real world problems. Designed for students in grades eight and above, the 2006 Shipwreck Archeological Workshop will give ten participants a glimpse of what it's like to be an archeologist.

The program, sponsored by the Charles Finch Gaddy Foundation, will introduce students to archeological concepts and methods and then invite them to Hatteras Island during the week of June 18-24, 2006 to investigate an actual shipwreck site near the museum. Tuition, which includes room and board for the week, is $200. Scholarships are available for students who need assistance. You may download a copy of the application (MS Word format) by clicking here or you may obtain one by calling the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum at 252-986-2995.

The SAW program was created by Wendy M. Coble, MA, archeologist and the late Sheri D. Coble, MA, educator. Wendy has an MA in Maritime History and Underwater Archeology from East Carolina University and currently works for the U.S. Naval Historical Center. She will be assisted during the workshop by Beverly Henson, a teacher of Science and Social Studies at Cape Hatteras Elementary School.
