The Maritime Archaeological Survey of Oman – building capacity for a sustainable future
The Maritime Archaeological Survey of Oman – building capacity for a sustainable future
This paper outlines a capacity development project that was undertaken in Oman in between 2014 and 2016. Commissioned by the Ministry of Heritage and Culture (MHC) of the Sultanate of Oman, the Marine Archaeological Survey of Oman (MASO) project was delivered by the Western Australian Museum (WAM) and the University of Southampton, Maritime Archaeological Stewardship Trust (MAST). The objective was to identify and investigate possible sites of maritime archaeological significance along the coast of Oman, through a desk-based assessment, to establish a baseline understanding of the maritime archaeology of the country, develop a GIS, and provide training for MHC employees. The project also comprised coastal reconnaissance and focused remote sensing and diver survey in targeted areas. The primary objective however, was to develop capacity and enhance the expertise of the MHC underwater archaeological team, and raise awareness about the significance of Oman’s underwater cultural heritage to the government and public of Oman. This paper will report on the findings of this project.

Abstract

This paper outlines a capacity development project that was undertaken in Oman in between 2014 and 2016. Commissioned by the Ministry of Heritage and Culture (MHC) of the Sultanate of Oman, the Marine Archaeological Survey of Oman (MASO) project was delivered by the Western Australian Museum (WAM) and the University of Southampton, Maritime Archaeological Stewardship Trust (MAST). The objective was to identify and investigate possible sites of maritime archaeological significance along the coast of Oman, through a desk-based assessment, to establish a baseline understanding of the maritime archaeology of the country, develop a GIS, and provide training for MHC employees. The project also comprised coastal reconnaissance and focused remote sensing and diver survey in targeted areas. The primary objective however, was to develop capacity and enhance the expertise of the MHC underwater archaeological team, and raise awareness about the significance of Oman’s underwater cultural heritage to the government and public of Oman. This paper will report on the findings of this project.
