Managing the Marine Cultural Heritage
Defining, accessing and managing the resource
edited by J Satchell & P Palma
Recent decades have witnessed an expansion of archaeological activity under water and in the coastal zone. There has also been a realisation of the threats to this material from human and natural action. This period of relatively rapid change has increased pressure on governments, heritage groups and agencies, coastal-zone managers, and sea users to formulate approaches to managing the maritime cultural heritage.
This volume presents a range of international initiatives that include examples of management responses to regional, national, and international situations. It also discusses the principal challenges facing maritime archaeology, which have relevance not just in the UK but across the globe.
