The MIT Deep Water Archaeology Research Group, DeepArch, is developing methodology for archaeological investigations in the deepest parts of the world’s oceans (to 6,000m deep) using advanced sensors, robotics, and submersibles. DeepArch conducts research that includes archaeologists, historians, engineers, and oceanographers, so that the challenge of working in deep water can be approached from all angles. Leaders in these fields are brought together through lectures, conferences, and expeditions, to investigate the tools and methods needed to study this complex discipline. In addition, DeepArch believes in the education of a new generation of archaeologists and engineers, and we participate in a number of educational opportunities, including public lectures and ROV competitions.
