The chapters in this edited volume present multi-disciplinary case studies of prehistoric archaeological sites located on now-submerged portions of the continental shelf. Each chapter represents an extension of the known prehistoric record beyond the modern shoreline. Case studies represent central themes of landscape change, climate change and societal development, using new technologies for mapping, monitoring and managing these sites.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the book reviews:

"With the combination of a `call to arms' for the future of this exciting research by Flemming, a review of the state of the science by Flatman and Evans, and a concluding summary by Bailey, this volume provides a good overview of the discipline. ... provides a timely reminder about the potential importance of archaeology on the continental shelf and makes a significant contribution to the field and I would thoroughly recommend it to the reader ... ." (R. Helen Farr, International Journal of Nautical Archaeology, Vol. 44 (1), 2015)

"At last, a book about inundated prehistoric sites with depth. ... It should be required reading for archaeologists, with its fascinating glimpse of a new world of data. ... Surely it is time to absorb submerged archaeology into our discipline. Well illustrated and easy to read: put on your Christmas list!" (Caroline Wickham-Jones, British Archaeology, September-October, 2014)
