About Me

I am Michael Stratigos and I study archaeology. I am mostly interested in maritime and underwater archaeology, but I have found myself interested in a great many other facets of the discipline. I am originally from South Bend, Indiana, but attended the University of Aberdeen in Scotland for my undergraduate degree. It was here that I began in archaeology, and after completing that degree I attended the University of Southampton to undertake an MA in Maritime Archaeology.  I am now back at Aberdeen conducting the PhD with which this blog is concerned.

  1. I am very interested in your work on Crannogs and great that you are doing a PhD at Aberdeen. I am also interested in underwater archaeology and have the NAS Part III and was a participant of SOMAP some years ago.

  2. Your research and information on crannogs in general is incredibly interesting – I’m enjoy your blog. Thank you for sharing!
