An Introduction to Maritime Archeology Case study: Tassie II Byron Bay

Slide 2

Overview What is Maritime Archeology? Why contemplating and protect submerged legacy? Chronicled wreck preservation and administration in Australia Role of the volunteer Case concentrate on: The Tassie II, fundamental shoreline Byron Bay

Slide 3

What is Archeology? Distinguishing proof and understanding of physical hints of past life (Dean et al . 2000) Aims to clarify, placing ancient rarities into a social setting Provides bits of knowledge into past lives, decisions, inspirations Develops a system for future attempt

Slide 4

What is Maritime Archeology? The investigative investigation of the material stays of human action on the ocean, lakes and streams (McCarthy 1998; Delgado (ed) 1997) The essential object of study is man, not the physical remains which the analyst is instantly stood up to with (Muckelroy 1978)

Slide 5

What is Maritime Archeology? Relics are not generally submerged (eg. dry waterway bank locales) Underwater paleohistory is not generally Maritime Archeology (submerged abodes) Nautical Archeology - vessel development and use

Slide 6

Why study submerged legacy? Physical connection with the past Understand ways of life and decisions of the far off past (simple to legitimize) Archeology of the later past Poor record continuing Conflicting records Secrecy Context is everything (site trustworthiness)

Slide 7

Need for assurance and examination Advent of SCUBA in the 1940 and 50\'s Looting of WA Dutch wrecks in the 1960\'s Need to create sea archaic exploration in Australia Need to archive and study destinations Need for comprehension of site procedures Site administration arranges Cultural and investigative worth

Slide 8

Heritage enactment Commonwealth Navigation Act (1912) Requires reporting wrecks to the Receiver of Wrecks (Australian Maritime Safety Authority) No short to secure archeological criticalness West Australian Museums Act (corrected) Maritime Archeology Act (1973) Successful test to WA enactment Historic Shipwrecks Act (1976) (C\'wealth) Complementary state enactment

Slide 9

Protective measures Historic Shipwrecks Act (1976) Administered by agents in every state (Director, NSW Heritage office) 75 years (known or obscure) Conservation orders/insurance zones Large fines and detainment State enactment Heritage Act (1977) (50 years) Other state and Commonwealth acts

Slide 10

Responsible offices Enforcement by State, Territory or Commonwealth Police Heritage Office Administration of State and Commonwealth acts Development and usage of open projects (ANMM) Disseminating data to the general population (ANMM) Access (grants)

Slide 11

Non-government associations Australian Institute for Maritime Archeology (AIMA) Assists state offices with projects Conferences and distributions (AIMA Bulletin/pamphlets) National Shipwreck database Code of morals Training of volunteers (AIMA/NAS courses)

Slide 12

Non-government associations Other national bodies Australian Association for Maritime History Maritime Museums Association of Australia National trust Amateur gatherings and chronicled social orders (Richmond River Historical Society) Private galleries and other vested parties

Slide 13

Community inclusion Documenting sea legacy is a monstrous occupation Cooperative contribution of jumpers indispensable for fruitful administration of locales Brochures and data shows Heritage trails Wrecks alive system NAS/AIMA preparing Volunteer work with archeologists

Slide 14

AIMA/NAS preparing Raise attention to submerged legacy and importance Introduce standards of Maritime Archeology Provide preparing in: Search strategies (remote detecting) Position settling Basic site review Non-damaging inspecting

Slide 15

Case study: Tassie II Background Diving wreck for a long time + Surveyed with Clegg (1997) AIMA/NAS Part 1 AIMA/NAS Part 2/Field School

Slide 16

Case study: Tassie II Rationale Priority to curios that give new experiences into the past or are especially illustrative of the innovation of a period

Slide 17

Case study: Tassie II Rationale Little known/recorded about the part of vendor vessels in WWII Limited narrative proof Conflicting oral history Crew reprimanded for loss of vessel Easy shore access Need for site administration? Potential for legacy trail?

Slide 18

Case study: Tassie II The paper trail Biggest part is the foundation examine The oral history Pre-war administration Wartime benefit The disaster area occasion

Slide 19

Case study: Tassie II Research needs Relationship with breakwater remains Vessel sort and development Engine room crane pulley Site protection Heritage trail? Site administration arrangement?

Slide 20

Artifact preservation What is a curio? Question no more in it\'s practical setting Why rescue and protect relics? Accessible to overall population Preserve agent case of a specific innovation Prevent misfortune/devastation Much more data can be gotten
