The Studies in Nautical Traditions Lecture Series Presents:

Charles Dagneau

Charles Dagneau was born in Québec City, Canada, where he studied archaeology at Université Laval (Québec), between 1996 and 1999. He completed a Master’s degree in archaeology at Université de Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne in 1999-2001 and then a PhD degree in anthropology at Université de Montréal in 2003-2009.

Since his very beginnings in the field in 1996, Charles has worked both as a land and as an underwater archaeologist on a variety of sites in Canada, in the USA and in France. He specialized in 17-18th Century post-medieval maritime archaeology, naval architecture, material culture studies and wood analysis, including dendrochronology.

Charles was involved in multiple excavation projects, such as those of the Cavalaire Wreck (France, 16th c.), the Elizabeth and Mary (Quebec, 1690), Fort Saint-Louis (Texas, 1685), Lapérouse shipwrecks (Salomo Islands, 1788), Aber Wrack 2 (France, 18th c.). Charles most notably worked with Adramar association and the French ministry of Culture (Drassm) on La Natière shipwrecks (Dauphine, 1704 and Aimable-Grenot, 1749) between 1999 and 2007. He joined Parks Canada in 2008 and participated on a number of research and survey projects across the country since then.
