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 wth 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.
