The INA Archives is the main repository for a wide range of materials from decades of INA excavations and research. These materials include but are not limited to: photographs and film/video, artifact illustrations, site plans, field notebooks, dive logs, and financial records. In addition, the INA Archives has become home to an interesting array of research materials belonging to important individuals in the field of nautical archaeology (e.g. Paul Lipke, Dominic Ruegg, and Peter Throckmorton).
The INA Archivist is responsible for the curation and organization of these materials and, as appropriate, fulfilling requests for reproductions of or access to them. Thematically, the visual material in the INA Archives documents the excavation of underwater sites since the 1950s, the equipment and techniques employed in those excavations, the recovery, conservation, and restoration of artifacts, and the people involved. Visit the Project Pages of this website to view individual image galleries. If you are interested in accessing material in the INA Archives, send your request to email@example.com, with a brief description of the material and purpose. The INA Archivist will respond with information about availability, permissions, and fees.
