Public Underwater Archaeology: Public Perception VS. Plausible Reality in the Case of the CSS Pee Dee Cannon Raising.

Author(s): Jessica Glickman

Year: 2017

Summary

Managing the expectations of the public and the timeline in which many expect archaeology to happen is a challenge for every public archaeological organization. When you add the underwater component and restrictions related to maritime law, public perception and plausible reality often conflict. The raising of the CSS Pee Dee Canons serves as an example of mitigating multiple agencies as well as making underwater archaeology visible. This crossover also highlights many of the problems with public underwater archaeology and public misconceptions that present unique challenges.
