About this book

Research into the anthropogenic and taphonomic processes that affect the formation of maritime archaeological resources has grown significantly over the last decade in both theory and the analysis of specific sites and associated material culture. The addition of interdisciplinary inquiry, investigative techniques, and analytical modeling, from fields such as engineering, oceanography, and marine biology have increased our ability to trace the unique pathways through which archaeological sites progress from initial deposition to the present, yet can also link individual sites into an integrated socio-environmental maritime landscape.

This edited volume presents a global perspective of current research in maritime archaeological landscape formation processes. In addition to “classically” considered submerged material culture and geography, or those that can be accessed by traditional underwater methodology, case studies include less-often considered sites and landscapes. These landscapes, for example, require archaeologists to use geophysical marine survey equipment to characterize extensive areas of the seafloor or go above the surface to access maritime archaeological resources that have received less scholarly attention.

Reviews

“Formation Processes of Maritime Archaeological Landscapes is an important new exploration of the ever-widening approaches available to maritime archaeologists interested in conceptualizing and characterizing landscapes and seascapes. … this volume represents a significant step forward in communicating the complex and dynamic themes that are open for scholarly inquiry in landscape research.” (Nathan Richards, Journal of Maritime Archaeology, Vol. 14, 2019)
