This special volume of Conservation and Management of Archaeological Sites debates the priorities and pressures involved in the conservation and management of archaeological sites in the marine zone — above, across and below water on an international scale. The contributors represent a cross-section of practitioners drawn from industry, the public sector and academia, working literally around the entire globe from Australia to Argentina by way of the UK, US and elsewhere. They consider, among other things, threats to coastal and submerged cultural resources in the light of farming and industrial development, the management of historic wreck sites and viability of in situ preservation, the impact of national programmes such as the UK Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund, and the future management of underwater cultural heritage via tools such as the newly ratified 2001 UNESCO Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage.
