Product description

Review

"All in all this attractive paperback with 20 chapters and 3 appendices should make a welcome addition not only on the bookshelves of archaeologically minded divers, but most archaeologists too, as it explains many basic archaeological concepts clearly and concisely." ( South African Archaeological Bulletin, 2010)

"It is an excellent addition to the NAS training program.... I would expect the text will be picked up by most institutions and non–academic groups involved in the teaching and general practice of maritime archaeology." ( SAS Bulletin, November 2009)

"There is much useful stuff here." (British Archaeology, January 2009)

"The text and graphics have been updated, resulting in this long–awaited second edition of what is popularly known as ′The NAS (Nautical Archaeology Society) Handbook′. The second edition includes several new chapters covering topics such as photography, legislation and conservation. Additional chapters reflect significant developments or new approaches, particularly with respect to project planning, safety on archaeological sites, historic research, monitoring and maintenance and geophysics. Each individual component of this book was written by an expert in his/her field." (Ocean News & Technology, November 2008)

"This book will enable readers to make the most of their involvement with the rich underwater heritage that helped shape the world in which we live, and do so in a responsible way." (Institute of Nautical Archaeology Quarterly, Summer 2008)

Review

"An essential vade mecum for anyone interested in archaeology under water, whether aspiring fieldworker or armchair enthusiast. This book distills a generation of practical experience in a concise and user–friendly form."
Colin Martin

"This long–awaited update of the NAS handbook is a gold mine of practical advice. It is a must–have, must–read and must–reread for everyone practising nautical archaeology"
George Lambrick, Chair Nautical Archaeology Society

"Indispensable for anyone in underwater archaeology. Even the most experienced will find much of value in it. How I wish it had been available when I began half a century ago!"
George Bass, Texas A&M University
