The book largely outlines a history of deepwater archaeology, paying attention to a number of well-known shipwrecks examined by archaeologists and treasure hunters, before concentrating on 4/5(2). Archaeological Oceanography is the definitive book on the newly emerging field of deep-sea archaeology. Marine archaeologists have been finding and excavating underwater shipwrecks since at least the early s, but until recently their explorations have been restricted to depths considered shallow by oceanographic standards.5/5(3).   Archaeological Oceanography is the definitive book on the newly emerging field of deep-sea archaeology.

  Deepwater archaeology uncovers secrets from the ancient maritime past Thousands of shipwrecks and archaeological sites lie undiscovered in deep water, potentially holding important clues to our maritime past. Scientists have explored only a small percentage of the oceans' depths, as 98 percent of the seabed lies well beyond the reach of conventional diving. Deep water archaeology offers new ways of doing archaeology, while presenting entirely different types of information about the ancient world. It may be that through the study of deep water shipwrecks, we can glimpse the prehistoric moment when civilization crystallized and the modern world began.   Archaeological Oceanography is the definitive book on the newly emerging field of deep-sea archaeology. Marine archaeologists have been finding and excavating underwater shipwrecks since at least the early s, but until recently their explorations have been restricted to depths considered shallow by oceanographic standards. This book describes the latest advances that enable .   There is reason to believe that some old wooden ships on the deep-sea floor have survived for thousands of years without much change. They will not be covered with much sediment, and it will be possible to find them using new searching techniques. These are embodied in the system of the Alcoa Seaprobe, which is also equipped to identify and raise old by: 3.

"Overall the book achieves what it sets out to do: to present technical information of maritime archaeology based on Jeremy Green's book has great strengths in presenting the basics of underwater field techniques to the archaeologist. The book will be used as a handy reference work that is ideal to take on a field trip."Cited by: 3. View Deep water archaeology Research Papers on for free. In the past few years there has been an increased interest in deep water archaeology, and a growing number of archaeological institutions now use remote sensing equipment and remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) to locate and investigate deep water archaeological by: There is archaeology that occurs in deep water indeed, but it is simply archaeology. The depth is an impediment to be overcome, requiring new technologies and methods but not “new archaeologists.”.
