Penn-Brock Statement

Penn-Brock Statement

A two-part workshop series titled, Who owns underwater cultural heritage? Perspectives on archaeological law and ethics in the Mediterranean, was convened at Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario (22-25 October 2009) and at the University of Pennsylvania Museum in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (26-28 March 2010). Over the course of the two sessions, the document below emerged through consensus of the participants to reflect principles and best practices for underwater archaeology and the stewardship of underwater cultural heritage.
