Top Categories:



This monograph summarises the great contribution of the MALSF to the study
of submerged prehistory in the offshore areas of Britain. The review outlines the
development of world-leading methodologies and successful integration of industrial
and archaeological working practices. Focusing upon MALSF-financed research, a
chronological synthesis of the archaeology and palaeo-landscape reconstructions
from large regions of the southern North Sea, English Channel and elements of the
west coast encompasses much of the last 1 million years. The wide dissemination
and contribution of this research to the understanding of the submerged prehistory
of Northwest Europe and Britain is showcased. This substantial body of research
serves as an exemplar of best-practice. The MALSF has enabled cross-disciplinary
collaboration to better manage, preserve and investigate the finite and internationallyimportant
archaeology preserved offshore.
