As too many of our young Bermudians know, in today's climate fulfilling employment can be difficult to come by. Lingering negative economic factors have shrunk our population - and thus our workforce - with the knock-on effect of fewer businesses taking chances on hiring inexperienced youth.

A version of this article first appeared in Quest: The Journal of Global Underwater Explorers This is a question I've been asked on several occasions and honestly, it is a fair question. When I first started working for the Waitt Institute as a research assistant, many of the projects they supported involved historic shipwrecks and, as noted, these are usually quite expensive, and often dangerous expeditions. With the global economy still recovering, dire warnings about the state of our environment, and our educational systems struggling to transition into the twenty-first century, people often ask if funding wouldn't be better spent elsewhere. So I set out to ask a couple of people with caring expertise how they would respond to such a question. The answers I received were diverse; yet, interestingly, all of the responses are compelling enough on their own to not only continue exploring and conserving, but perhaps even to do it with greater urgency than ever before.

Archaeology is a uniquely important part of the historic preservation process. The Archaeological Research Committee at the Bermuda National Trust is a very active volunteer group undertaking archaeological excavations of historic houses and properties throughout the island, more often than not, partnering with internationally recognised archaeologists and institutions. A recent partnership with Dr. Michael Jarvis and his field school from the University of Rochester has literally uncovered some of Bermuda's earliest history on an out-of-the-way island in St. George's Harbour.
