A core objective of the Foundation is to publish and disseminate research work which is a result of the HFF grants and papers from the Honor Frost archive. In 2018 the Foundation established a Publication Series and also provides grants for authors to publish their work as open access articles through the Open Access Award.  The short reports are online only and emanate from conferences and meetings supported by the Foundation. Reports by The HFF Steering Committee on UCH (SCUCH) are available in our SCUCH policy publications.

Under the Mediterranean

Honor Frost published her book Under the Mediterranean in 1963, in the book she describes her first experience of diving in a well in Wimbledon to her first explorations in the Mediterranean. An excellent writer, Honor provides a fantastic insight in to what it is like to dive, it is in this book she states that ‘time spent on the surface was time wasted’. Much has changed since this was written almost 60 years ago, but Honor’s emphasis on the need for a rigorous scientific approach to underwater archaeology is clearly evident in the chapters of this book.
