Maritime archaeologist
By Casey Spencer ’05
Lesley Haines ’09 has always
had a love for the ocean; she even
received her diving certification
by age 12. Eventually, this love
developed
into an
interest in
land and
maritime
archaeology,
which led
Haines to
pursue her
studies in
Lycoming
College’s archaeology program.
Haines double-majored in
archaeology and history, and
minored in classical studies.
Through the College’s study
abroad program, she had the
opportunity to study in Florence,
Italy, gaining a hands-on
understanding of conservation
methods. She is a staff member
at Tel Gezer, Israel, one of
Lycoming’s archaeological field
sites, where she also volunteered
as a student.
After graduating from
Lycoming, Haines went on to
study at Bristol University in
the United Kingdom. In 2010,
she honed her underwater
archaeological skills in the Sound
of Mull, Scotland. There, she
worked tediously on recording,
analyzing, preserving and
excavating a shipwreck.
Having completed her
first master’s, Haines recently
returned to Lycoming to deliver
a colloquium lecture on her
experiences and knowledge
concerning the techniques,
preservation and conservation
involved with maritime
archaeology.
Now, the young archaeologist is
beginning a graduate program in
conservation at Cardiff University,
U.K., with the hopes of pursuing
a career in the conservation
of maritime archaeology, and
eventually earning a Ph.D.
