Description: This book is not meant to be a passport to become an instant maritime archaeologist. Rather, it is an aid or guide for those interested or involved in the field. The book is divided into five broad areas: searching for sites; recording sites; excavation; management; and study, research, and publication. I have tried to cover all the main subjects involved within these areas. It is interesting that in the last 10 years, methods of recording have become much more technical and, in many cases, much easier for the archaeologist. Although this technical handbook deals mainly with shipwreck archaeology, there is no reason why the techniques cannot be applied to other forms of cultural heritage underwater (or in some cases on land). There is no differentiation on approaches to sites of different ages; this, for a technical handbook, is irrelevant, since the archaeological methodology does not change simply because one site is very old and another modern.
