Book Description

Jeremy Green's systematic overview of maritime archaeology offers a step-by-step description of this fast-growing field. With new information about the use of computers and Global Positioning Systems, the second edition of this handbook shows how to extract as much information as possible from a site, how to record and document the data, and how to act ethically and responsibly with the artifacts. Treating underwater archaeology as a discipline, the book demonstrates how archaeologists, "looters," academics, and governments interact and how the market for archaeological artifacts creates obstacles and opportunities for these groups. Well illustrated and comprehensive in its approach to the subject, this book provides an essential foundation for everybody interested in underwater environments, submerged land structures, and conditions created by sea level changes.

Reviews

"The second edition of this handbook includes information on topics such as how to extract as much information as possible from a site, how to record and document data, and how to act ethically and responsibly with the artifact. - Sea Technology July 2004

"This is a revised version of the edition published in 1989, which was one of the few books that dealt with the practical issues of maritime archaeology at that time. This version is a more complete, detailed and modernised approach and is a 'must-have' publication for students and archaeologists without experience in archaeological excavation. It is also an important reference for more experienced ones. This handbook gives the new generation of students a modus operandi in the field of maritime archaeology from a technical and technological point of view, with a fluent and comprehensive style, easily accessible to new readers." Paola Palma, The Archaeologist
