On 15 September the Western Australian Museum Head of Maritime Archaeology Jeremy Green was awarded an honorary Doctor of Letters from the University of Western Australia for service to maritime archaeology. He also gave the graduation address on the night for the arts faculty.

Jeremy Green’s career has seen him achieve many things, from developing training programs for countries around the world, to excavating the infamous Dutch wreck Batavia in the 1970s. He joined the Western Australian Museum in 1971, establishing the Department of Maritime Archaeology, where he still works as Head of Department today.

Congratulations to Jeremy on this well-deserved recognition, and thank you for all the wonderful work you've done (and continue to do) for the Western Australian Museum.
