This innovative study offers an up-to-date analysis of the archaeology of the North Sea. Robert Van de Noort traces the way people engaged with the North Sea from the end of the last ice age, around 10,000 BC, to the close of the Middle Ages, about AD 1500. Van de Noort draws upon archaeological research from many countries, including the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Belgium and France, and addresses topics which include the first interactions of people with the emerging North Sea, the origin and development of fishing, the creation of coastal landscapes, the importance of islands and archipelagos, the development of seafaring ships and their use by early seafarers and pirates, and the treatments of boats and ships at the end of their useful lives.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Robert van de Noort makes such an ambitious effort ... he is well placed to combine elements rarely observed on an exceptionally broad canvas ... [He] gives a concise, readable and iconoclastic view expanding the boundaries of period-based, regionally focused and methodologically driven source literature. * James Barrett, Times Literary Supplement *
By viewing the North Sea as a lived space and a living landscape this work deepens our understanding of the archaeology of the region. As such the book is successful in its desire to make the sea good to think and provides a useful text for students and all those interested in the scope of maritime archaeology or the North Sea region. * R. H. Farr, Journal of Maritime Archaeology *
an interesting and different book that ... deserves to find a home on the bookshelves of those with a broad interest in maritime and landscape archaeology. * Simon Fitch, Northern Scotland *
