The Institute of Nautical Archaeology (INA) has a large collection of digitized images, color slides and black & white prints available for reproduction or for lecture purposes. The collection covers INA’s many excavation projects and includes such subjects as the excavation of underwater sites, equipment and techniques employed in nautical archaeology, artifacts recovered, conservation and restoration of artifacts, and ancient ship reconstruction. Please visit the Project Pages of this website to view individual galleries of our projects.

In recent years, INA has been digitizing its thousands of archival images as high-resolution electronic files. However, many of the images found in the Project pages of this site are housed as low-resolution files. If you require high-resolution copies of our images, please indicate this in your image request form. We will contact you if the image you require must be re-digitized to meet your specifications and some additional fees may apply.
INA does not grant exclusive rights to reproduce images.
Possession of an INA image does not express INA’s permission to reproduce the image, or permit the holder to allow others to do so.
Photo credit line: the user is responsible for copyright clearance. When an image is reproduced, the credit line should read: Copyright or Courtesy of the Institute of Nautical Archaeology/photographer’s name (when available).
Limitations: photographic material must not be used to imply that INA endorses any commercial product or enterprise, or concurs with the opinion expressed in any texts used with INA photographs.
Duplication, printing, and shipping fees are payable whether the image is reproduced or not. Your check should be issued through a U.S. bank and made payable to INA in U.S. dollars.
