While there are several books in the field of preservation and heritage protection for terrestrial archaeology, there are very few resources for archaeologists working with maritime and submerged cultural heritage. This book brings together state-of-the-art ideas, research and scholarship associated with maritime public education and interpretation. It will add to a limited body of knowledge in a field that is steadily growing.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"This volume is … testimony to a much larger set of challenges that have come to define heritage conservation and museum practice today. … the book appears to be largely aimed at politicians and policy makers, and perhaps also the larger archaeological community, those who are not entirely aware of the maritime aspect of their discipline. … the larger issues behind the book do have significant ramifications for all those with an interest – intellectual, educational, political and financial – in heritage conservation of any kind, anywhere." (Garth Wilson, International Journal of Maritime History, Vol. XX (1), June, 2008)
