9780122986321: Maritime Archaeology: A Technical Handbook

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.

* Covers five broad areas: searching for sites, recording sites, excavation, management of collections, and study, research and publication
* Describes a variety of techniques and procedures in considerable detail, accessible to both professional and amateur archaeologists
* More than 250 photographs, charts, and diagrams explain everything from how to operate a sextant and a hand-held GPS to how a swim line should be laid out by the dive team before excavation begins

Review:

Praise for the First Edition:
"I found many useful tips on specific methods, and can recommend this book highly as a reference for anyone wishing to become familiar with widely-used underwater site survey and recording methods...Useful methods are presented for locating the position of sites, for mapping site features, and for controlled underwater excavation."
JOURNAL OF FIELD ARCHAEOLOGY

"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. The book demonstrates how archaeologists, looters, academics and governments interact and how the market for archaeological artifacts creates obstacles for these groups, while also trying to provide a foundation for all those interested in underwater environments." - Sea Technology July 2004
