Institute of Maritime Research and Discovery is a scientific/educational non-profit
organization, founded to facilitate maritime and nautical studies by scholars
and enthusiasts from a variety of disciplines. Rooted in archaeology, the Institute
supports work as diversified as maritime archaeology, ethnography, and examinations
of textual and artistic evidence relevant to nautical life and history.
In order to accomplish these goals IMRD will serve as a fiscal sponsor for its
research associates and provide networking, scholarships, grants, and equipment
when possible (as approved by the Board).
Another of the Institute's goals is to facilitate efforts to capture the attention
of both academics and the community at large. So, please pardon our progress
on this Web site, we aim to make it comprehensive and interactive. Keep a weather
eye out on our Web page as all IMRD research is posted here!
