Research and Research Higher Degree Matters

Associate Professor Mark Staniforth: International Science Linkages: Humanities and Creative Arts International Research Fellowship Award
Congratulations to Associate Professor Mark Staniforth on the award of an International Science Linkages: Humanities and Creative Arts International Research Fellowship. The Fellowship will support Mark’s participation in the Bach Dang archaeological research project, an international collaboration between the Maritime Archaeology Program (MAP) at Flinders, the Institute of Nautical Archaeology at Texas A&M University and researchers from the Institute of Archaeology at the Vietnamese Academy of Social Sciences and the Vietnam Archaeology Academy.

The project aims to reconstruct the historical battles that took place on the Bach Dang River near Haiphong in Northern Vietnam in the 10th and 13th centuries, and to investigate the ships that took part in them. A team of archaeologists will survey the site over a four-week period in early 2010, locating submerged and buried shipwrecks.
