NAP Brown Bag Lecture Series

The brown bag lectures are an informal series of presentations and talks held by the Nautical Archaeology students. Please check back closer to the beginning of the fall semester for a schedule of upcoming talks for the Fall of 2014 semester.

The brown bag lectures are often filmed (except for publication restrictions) and are available, with other NAP-related videos, on our YouTube Channel.
