Description: The volume you hold in your hands provides an instrument for considering the meaning of our nation’s maritime heritage
as viewed through the lens of our nation’s national marine sanctuaries. Although only a glimpse, it allows us to consider
the past and the future of the mosaic of American culture. “Fathoming Our Past” helps us define why our maritime heritage
is important to us as a community and a nation. It also tells us about who we are and why it is worth our efforts to preserve
and interpret heritage resources for future generations.
At the National Marine Sanctuary Program we use a focus on heritage resources as a tool to encourage a way of thinking.
“Fathoming Our Past” presents the compelling role of the ocean in humanity’s journey. We want to engage society’s attention
and to excite the mind by telling stories that bring all Americans to look seaward. By refocusing our vision, we see the
interconnectedness of the heritage and natural resources of the ocean.
In this way NOAA’s National Marine Sanctuary Program strives to propel the evolution of the discipline of maritime archaeology
as a “means to an end” to help all Americans engage in behaviors that conserve our oceans.
