By Alicia Caporaso
Research into the anthropogenic and taphonomic methods that have an effect on the formation of maritime archaeological assets has grown considerably over the past decade in either conception and the research of particular websites and linked fabric tradition. The addition of interdisciplinary inquiry, investigative ideas, and analytical modeling, from fields reminiscent of engineering, oceanography, and marine biology have elevated our skill to track the original pathways during which archaeological websites growth from preliminary deposition to the current, but may also hyperlink person websites into an built-in socio-environmental maritime landscape.
This edited quantity offers a world standpoint of present learn in maritime archaeological panorama formation strategies. as well as “classically” thought of submerged fabric tradition and geography, or those who could be accessed through conventional underwater technique, case reviews contain less-often thought of websites and landscapes. those landscapes, for instance, require archaeologists to take advantage of geophysical marine survey gear to represent wide components of the seafloor or move above the outside to entry maritime archaeological assets that experience got much less scholarly attention.
