Advances in Global Submerged Paleolandscapes Research

Part of: Society for American Archaeology 86th Annual Meeting, Online (2021)

This collection contains the abstracts of the papers presented in the session entitled "Advances in Global Submerged Paleolandscapes Research" at the 86th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.

Worldwide, there has been an increase in research focused on submerged paleolandscapes as a way to better understand these spaces within a cultural framework and with the intention of identifying evidence of human activity on these once subaerial places. This research tends to be interdisciplinary and technologically advanced and focuses on a wide range of methods to understand sometimes vast regions. We are interested in highlighting this research to the broader archaeological community in part to bring awareness to this maritime research and to bring together a community of scientists from across the globe that can share experiences and help to advance the discipline of maritime archaeological research.
