About this book

Although underwater archaeology has assumed its rightful place as an important subdiscipline in the field, the published literature has not kept pace with the rapid increase in the number of both prehistoric and historic underwater sites. The editors have assembled an internationally distinguished roster of contributors to fill this gap. In addition to both geographical and topical approaches, the chapters also focus on technology, law, public and private institutional roles and goals, and the research and development of future technologies and public programs.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The editors are to be congratulated in managing and controlling a huge body of geographically wide and chronologically diverse material.  For the uninitiated, this handbook is a first-class, undaunting introduction to underwater archaeology, enabling the reader to grasp the current situation rapidly and accurately.  For the specialist its importance lies in its accessibility to work conducted across the globe, of which it is often difficult to keep abreast." (Sean Kingsley; Minerva 54, 15:4)
