The Rising Tide: Archaeology and Coastal Landscapes
F. A. Aberg, Carenza Lewis
Oxbow Books, 2000 - Architecture - 122 pages
The zone where sea meets land is an ever-changing environment, which often reveals fascinating details of human occupation and exploitation of the landscape. This fragile historic environment also creates both research and management problems. The papers published in this book were given at a joint conference of the Nautical Archaeology Society and the Society for Landscape Studies. They review various aspects of and approaches to archaeological research in British coastal landscapes, bringing together research from two traditionally separate disciplines; terrestrial and maritime archaeology.
