Dr Julian Whitewright will be the Archaeological Institute of America’s Steffy Lecturer for 2014-2015.

Julian will be delivering lectures at the University of Missouri, the University of Toronto and the University of Michigan during late October. He’ll present both his ongoing work into the sailing rigs of the ancient Mediterranean and research on eighteenth and nineteenth century British ships and shipbuilding.

The Steffy Lecturer was established by the AIA in 2008 to commemorate J. Richard Steffy’s life work on wooden shipbuilding and the interpretation of shipwrecks.
