Students in anthropology Professor Ervan Garrison’s underwater archaeology class spend some time training in the marine sciences pool to practice mapping, measuring and photographing a sunken boat. It is the first time for the course at UGA and requires students to make and sink a PVC grid, photograph and measure the boat and any artifacts found aboard, simulating an actual boat excavation.
