Maritime archaeology combines the principles and techniques applied to archaeological investigations on land with technological and methodological innovations that have enabled the comprehensive study of submerged and coastal sites. This relatively new and continuously evolving sub -discipline developed in . Journal of Maritime Archaeology is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles relating to maritime archaeology, both terrestrial and underwater, covering "all aspects of the human past in maritime environments both in historical times and remote prehistory." It is the major journal for theoretical contributions for maritime archaeology.

While the National Record of the Historic Environment (NRHE) in Scotland contains valuable information on more than , archaeological monuments, it is clear that this dataset is conditioned by the disposition of past survey and changing parameters of data collection strategies over many decades. This highlights the importance of creating systematic datasets, in which the standards to. Of particular importance to the archaeological process is the creation and deposition of archives from investigations. At present there are few available archives for maritime collections. We are contributing to addressing this through the recognition of the research potential of archives created during a range of investigations, and securing.

1. The History of Landscape Archaeology: Major Traditions and Approaches In t r o d u c t I o n This chapter aims at offering a wider context of the development of Landscape Archaeology within which the theoretical and methodological background of archaeological landscape research in the island of Crete can be viewed and understood. Archaeological survey has provided systematic and detailed information, which is valuable for site and landscape management and understanding of Scotland’s past, for relatively small areas of the country. For example, field survey projects by the former Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical.

Maritime cultural landscapes are collections of submerged archaeological sites, or combinations of terrestrial and submerged sites that reflect the relationship between humans and the water. These landscapes can range in size from a single beach to an entire coastline and can include areas of terrestrial sites now inundated as well as underwater sites that are now desiccated.

The Oxford Handbook of Maritime Archaeology is a comprehensive survey of the field as seen through the eyes of nearly fifty scholars at a time when maritime archaeology has established itself as a mature branch of archaeology. This volume draws on many of the distinct and universal aspects of maritime archaeology, bringing them together under four main themes: the research.

Marine geophysical survey in archaeology developed by borrowing techniques used in military applications (in particular the hunt for mines and submarines), geological prospection (the search for oil, gas and mineral resources), offshore construction (most recently for offshore windfarms), deep-ocean exploration and seafloor mapping.

On 19 April, Royal Commission Investigator Dr Toby Driver accompanied an RSPB monitoring visit out to the Skerries, a small group of rocky islets off north-west Anglesey.

Archaeological aerial reconnaissance had identified unrecorded earthworks surviving on the southern side of the islet. The trip was also a long overdue chance to examine the wider archaeology and built heritage of this.

This is of importance to submerged archaeological landscape. Archaeological archives are the cumulative finds, records, and associated data that result from a piece of archaeological fieldwork.

This article deals almost entirely with the very specific circumstances of archives in the UK and primarily English museums. Archives should represent a prime research and heritage asset; and yet historically they have been under-resourced and underused.

Underwater. Nautical. Marine. Why maritime. In Keith Muckelroy argued for maritime archaeology over the others. Nautical refers to ships, but archaeologists also work on sunken cities.

Marine refers to the ocean, but we dive in lakes and rivers, too. Underwater seems fitting, but Vikings chiefs were buried in ships on land. Fortunately, Ireland has one of the largest seabed mapping programs in the world (INFOMAR; Dorschel et al. ), and the resulting data have already been used in submerged landscape investigation.

Mapping Archaeological Landscapes from Space: In Observance of the 40th Anniversary of the World Heritage Convention offers a concise overview of air and spaceborne imagery and related geospatial technologies tailored to the needs of archaeologists.

Maritime archaeology and underwater cultural heritage management have become well established over the past twenty years or so in the Asia-Pacific region, particularly in Australia.

During that period Australian researchers and underwater cultural heritage managers have conducted a significant number of important maritime archaeological.
