The fourth Maritime Archaeology Graduate Symposium (MAGS) was held virtually for the first time by Aix-Marseille University (AMU), France, between the 25th-26th of November 2021, in a hybrid format. MAGS 2021 was organized by HFF scholars from Aix-Marseille University and the MoMArch team (Master of Maritime and Coastal Archaeology – AMU). The symposium was kindly supported by the Foundation and the Institute of Mediterranean Archaeology – ARKAIA.
Papers and posters presented ranged from shipbuilding, fishing activity in antiquity, ceramic studies to harbour archaeology, geoarchaeology, and underwater cultural heritage management. The Mediterranean, the Black Sea, the Atlantic Ocean, the Red Sea, the North Sea, as well as rivers in Europe were the geographical regions included in the discussion. All presentations generated fruitful discussions and exchanges between early career researchers and renowned experts from the respective fields. This event represents the enthusiasm and passion of the young generation of researchers working in the HFF region and beyond.
