2001 and 2002 Field Seasons in Lisbon


Team

In the summer of 2001 the team of students from Texas A&M University's Nautical Archaeology Program was composed of: Katie Custer, Peter Erik Flynn, Gustavo Garcia, Erika Laanela, Anthony Randolph, and Carrie Sowden.

The participation of this group of students was made possible through a grant from the Institute of Nautical Archaeology, awarded to Dr. Kevin Crisman's Azores project.  On the way to the Azores students made a stop over of one month during which they worked on the Cais do Sodré project.  The total costs, including airplane tickets totaled around USD $6.800.

The work started in June 2001 was completed at Texas A&M University ShipLab, by: Dante Bartoli, Starr Cox, Peter Erik Flynn, Gustavo Garcia, and Michael Jones.

In the summer of 2002 the team of students from Texas A&M University's Nautical Archaeology Program was composed of: Starr Cox, Katie Custer, Peter Erik Flynn, Gustavo Garcia, and Sara Hoskins.

The participation of these students was partly funded by the Nautical Archaeology Program, partly by the students themselves, some of which paid their own travel and other expenses.

These teams were coordinated by project director Paulo Jorge Rodrigues, in coordination with myself in what pertained to the academic development of the students.

Lodging

During both 2001 and 2002 summers all students stayed in the Centro Nacional de Arqueologia Náutica e Subaquática's warehouse, which is equipped with rooms for students, as well as a kitchen, and bathrooms.

Working Schedule

During the month of June 2002 - the summer school class period - students were required to work five days a week, and between seven and eight hours a day.  This was precisely the same schedule of the students that worked during the previous summer, in June 2001.  For the 2002 summer school the work schedule was flexible so that both Katie Custer and Sara Hoskins could pursue archival investigation in CNANS library, and in several other places in Lisbon.
