I recently joined this list and wanted to introduce myself. I am the director of the online Museum of Underwater Archaeology (MUA) which is housed on a server at the University of Rhode Island. Our non-profit organization is dedicated to helping underwater / maritime archaeologists and historians present the results of their research online. In this way we are able to help them reach a wider public audience which is critical in helping to spread the word about the protection of submerged cultural resources. Our organization is unique in that we bring together the efforts of ethical avocational, graduate student, and professional archaeologists and historians in one place. Our contributors typically do not have the time, money, or expertise to create their own websites. Of course there is never any charge for this.
Despite our home location in the United States the MUA has a global focus. We have presentations from North America, Australia, Japan, and France. We are very pleased to say that within the next month we will have our first contribution from a site in Africa.
I have joined this list in an effort to learn what current work is taking place in Britain and to invite you all to consider working with us to help spread the word about your research to worldwide audience (we have visitors from over 90 countries). I hope you will take a moment and view our site. We would very much like to have projects from your corner of the world.
