   schema:reviewBody ""Archaeology is known as a practical science in which some enthusiastic amateurs have excelled quite as much as academics. The underwater branch especially attracts scholars, bona fide amateurs, and treasure-hunting salvors. Some articles in this volume reflect the long-standing rivalry between commercial salvors and archaeologists." "Writings are collected from a variety of sources: lecture notes, formal papers presented at academic conferences, and articles from obscure journals dating back almost half a century. The articles describe progress in the technology of diving and excavation over the decades, as well as differing attitudes among experts on methodology. Readers will not only develop an appreciation and understanding of how maritime archaeologists make their astonishing finds but also how they identify and classify these artifacts. The various authors describe the myriad technical advances in diving and excavation, always seeking insights into present practice from a knowledge of what has worked - and failed - in the past. The editors also include a compendious bibliography of works in this science." "The eclectic contents of Maritime Archaeology are aimed at students new to the field, as well as seasoned experts who wish to refine and perfect their knowledge."--Jacket." ;
