Managing the Marine Cultural Heritage

29-30 September 2004

Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, UK.

Recent decades have witnessed an expansion of archaeological activity under
water and in the coastal zone. This work has raised awareness of the
potential and importance of the resource. There has also been a realisation
of the threats to this material from human and natural action, sea-level
rise and erosion, increased development, industrial extraction,
exploitation of marine resources and sporting activities which are all
contributing to damage and loss.

The conference aims to inform those involved in managing the submerged
cultural resource of trials, developments or best practice models from
around the world.
