For those arriving early to the ICMM 2009 Conference in Esbjerg there is an

additional seminar on maritime heritage underwater, its management, its


exploitation and its access.

The seminar is organized by ICMM’s counterpart in ICOMOS, the International


Committee on the Underwater Cultural Heritage, ICUCH.

ICUCH was founded in 1992 to work with UNESCO on the development of best
practice regarding the protection and management of underwater cultural
heritage world-wide.

Starting with ICMM’s Barcelona resolutions on acquisition of objects recovered


under water, this field has developed enormously with the 2001 UNESCO
Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage entering into
force earlier this year, and the 1970 Convention now ratified by ever more
’importing’ countries.

ICUCH has 32 members world-wide and has its annual meeting in Esbjerg, just
prior to the start of the ICMM-congress.

The seminar will be held on October 5th and is hosted by the Maritime
Archaeology Programme at the University of Southern Denmark. The venue is
the University’s auditorium on Niels Bohrsvej 9.
