Bob Holtzman is:
- Studying for a PhD degree in the Centre for Maritime Archaeology at University of Southampton
- Author of books on outdoor skills
- Blogger at IndigenousBoats.com
I've written books on camping and wilderness survival and a series of children's books about boats. I've written dozens of articles for boating, business, and outdoor magazines and newspapers. I blog about boats from non-Western cultures at IndigenousBoats.com; I'm an enthusiastic canoeist (flatwater, canoe camping, whitewater); a hobbyist boatbuilder; and I hold Masters degrees in Marine Affairs from University of Rhode Island and Maritime Archaeology from University of Southampton. For my Masters dissertation in archaeology, I conducted the first broad analysis of logboat repairs in Britain and Ireland.
