Bio

Doug Inglis studies the archaeology of seaborne exploration and contact. He is passionate about public history and outreach, and writes about nautical archaeology at http://divingarchaeology.com. Doug served as assistant director of the Warwick Shipwreck Project, helping coordinate the excavation of an English galleon which sank in Castle Harbour, Bermuda, in November 1619. Over the course of four seasons, an international team of archaeologists precisely recorded Warwick’s extant hull, recovering important clues about the ship’s armament, cargo, rigging and design. In addition to overseeing documentation and recording, Doug was responsible for local outreach and education. He had the chance to engage visiting students from the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS), Woods Hole/SEA Semester and Spirit of Bermuda, and also provided formal talks at the National Museum of Bermuda, the Bermuda Sub-Aqua Club, and BIOS.
