Description
This volume gathers papers presented at the Maritime Archaeology Graduate Symposium, held in Oxford in 2018. The event was an Honor Frost Foundation initiative dedicated to new and upcoming research focused on eastern Mediterranean Archaeology and realised by a committee from the Centre for Maritime Archaeology, University of Southampton, and the Oxford Centre for Maritime Archaeology, University of Oxford. These essays represent the proceedings of this conference and contain some of the latest research and fieldwork in the Mediterranean and beyond. Topics include ships, ports and port systems, maritime economics, chemical analysis of archaeological remains and legislation in maritime archaeology. This publication is the product of an endeavour to promote early career research for maritime archaeologists with unique foci, and to establish a platform for them to discuss their findings with the wider community. With an introduction by Lucy Blue and Naseem Raad.

AUTHOR
Naseem Raad is a PhD candidate at the University of Southampton, based at the Centre for Maritime Archaeology. He is interested in the characterisation of what has been dubbed ?the Roman economy?. Naseem combines economic theory with archaeological methodology to explore production and distribution networks in the Roman Levant.

Carlos Cabrera Tejedor has a trans-disciplinary background, having started in conservation, and completed two bachelor's degrees, an MA in Nautical Archaeology from Texas A&M University and a DPhil in Archaeology at the University of Oxford. He is a maritime archaeologist with an interest in ancient shipbuilding and ports.
