NEW: We are pleased to introduce our online system for booking NAS courses and events.

The booking system is available to NAS members through the online portal and to non-members via this link. A PDF of the 2017 timetable is also available to download here. Both the portal and the PDF timetable will be updated throughout the year as new courses become available. If you have any questions, please contact the office.

Your booking is automatically linked to your account and any member's discounts will be applied at the checkout - so long as you are logged in. Discounts do require an up-to-date membership, the status of which can be found on your profile. If your membership has expired, you can renew it online or by calling the office (023 9281 8419).

More courses and events will be made available online as they are organised, so remember to keep checking. We hope you enjoy the new system!

Please note: The "Qualifications" and "Credentials" features on the member's portal are not yet available for editing. We hope to start work on this during the new year.

There are many ways in which you can get involved in nautical archaeology with the NAS. For over 40 years we have arranged events and activities all over the world.

So why not attend a conference, sign up for a course, visit a museum or historic ship or perhaps come with us on one of our trips to interesting countries with amazing nautical heritage?

To keep in touch with events and activities you could get involved with please sign up to our free E-news update or even better support the NAS by becoming a member and receive our quarterly newsletter, or subscribe to the world’s leading academic journal, the IJNA.

The Nautical Archaeology Society is a not for profit organisation and a registered charity in England and Scotland.
Our charitable objectives are to involve as many people as possible from all around the world in our maritime heritage.

This we do by a variety or mechanisms from schools outreach activities like after-school clubs; free courses for disadvantaged groups and by subsidising events that we believe will
enhance peoples lives and improve the prospects for our non-renewable cultural heritage.

Please donate to the NAS to help support our work, striving to improve the awareness and the experiences of people, through the fun and excitement that is nautical archaeology.
