Maritime Heritage – Virginia

A Chapter of the Archeological Society of Virginia

Providing opportunities for diving and non-diving volunteers of all skill levels to participate in a statewide effort to protect
and study underwater archaeological sites in Virginia.

An all-volunteer organzation

Established in October 2016 by members of the Archeological Society of Virginia (ASV), the Maritime Heritage Chapter investigates maritime and underwater archaeological sites, not only regionally, but throughout Virginia.
