Have you heard about the Commonwealth’s newly developed World War II underwater historical trail? Are you interested in learning more about the trail, along with recent discoveries in the history of local marine sites, ships, planes, and other artifacts?
For the past several years, underwater archaeologists from the United States and Australia have been conducting research on underwater sites in the CNMI’s waters. These sites range from post-colonial, turn-of-the-century sites to WWII sites to indigenous sites. This lecture will relate some of their more interesting research and discoveries.
Everyone is invited to a public talk to be given by Dr. Jennifer McKinnon of Flinders University, Australia, and hosted by the Asia Pacific Academy of Science, Education, and Environmental Management. Mark your calendar for Friday, April 22, 2011, at the American Memorial Park auditorium, beginning at 6:30pm.
McKinnon will be on Saipan to instruct local scuba instructors regarding the new WWII underwater heritage trail, which is rolling out in May/June of this year, and has agreed to lead this special meeting of APASEEM. For more information, APASEEM’s local officer emails are firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; and firstname.lastname@example.org. (PR)
