Final report on the Submerged Paleolandscape Archeology of North America Workshop

9 Feb by Admin Little Stoke

Vast regions of the continental shelves of North America are poorly known and remain unmapped. From the time people first arrived in North America, possibly as early as 20,000 years ago, people have lived along the coasts and inland regions of the continental shelves. As sea level rose evidence of their movements and settlements were inundated by the rising sea. The primary goal of this workshop was to develop a document to help guide federal, state, and tribal agencies and other stakeholders in their efforts to recognize the significance of submerged archeology and increase support, infrastructure, and organizational structure for this emerging discipline. Submerged landscape archeology is a new research frontier ripe for developing new methods and technology.
