From the end of 2018 The Rising from the Depths network will be funding research and community-based projects in East Africa around the broad theme of coastal marine heritage. The aim is that these projects will be multi-disciplinary in scope encompassing archaeology, history, anthropology, geography, coastal management, offshore development, marine science and legal studies to address real development needs.

We are currently setting up and expanding network contacts and setting the research agenda (in conjunction with local partners and groups) and will have a series of scoping meetings in East Africa and the UK. If you would like to come to one of these meetings, we would appreciate your input. Please contact us here.
