• Methodology and procedures

    The first category of activities includes the work on defining the terminology of wooden shipbuilding (with special emphasis on Croatian terms), defining the ship excavation procedure and the hull recording procedure, explaining the process of the interpretation of the archaeological record, and enlightening the natural and social context in relation to ships and seafaring in the past. This initial research is planned for the first year of the project, and has the objective to establish the methodology and procedures for each research phase through the final comprehensive publication, demonstrating the efficiency of the protocols in the case study of the Late Roman shipwreck near the islet Veli Školj in front of Pakoštane.
