Abstract

This report documents a meeting of twenty specialists with interests in the prehistory of England, marine and maritime archaeology and management of the archaeological resource. It identifies that if we wish to contextualise the submerged landscapes that we are now becoming more adept at locating and describing, we may need to change the methods we employ to investigate them. Currently, the shift from landscape description to more human archaeological accounts is challenged by the different qualities of the records created on land and at sea. The text below makes clear that there is no one way of addressing this issue, but, through learning from work overseas and by carefully considering key research questions for prehistory, we can begin to discern what an appropriately multi-scale seamless approach to prehistory may look like
