 DESCRIPTION
spacer
Prior to the commencement of maritime archaeological studies, many amateur divers, fishermen and academicians had recovered numerous artefacts from the seabed, to be either published, showcased, exhibited or sold. The importance and aesthetic value of the artefacts were understood by the scholars and the first academic research of maritime archaeology commenced in the Mediterranean Sea sometime after 1950. Moreover, maritime archaeology was also introduced in the curriculum of some universities and colleges in the 19th century. Now maritime archaeology is swiftly developing because of the availability of new technological advancements that allow archaeologists and oceanographers to explore deeper depths of the ocean bed which were earlier unapproachable. As in other countries, maritime archaeological studies were initiated in India in the year 1983, onshore and offshore explorations in the waters along the west and east coasts of India have been undertaken and remains of submerged ports, shipwrecks, stone anchors and traditional boatbuilding have been documented. But many scholars, researchers and students of South Asia, Southeast Asia and adjoining regions are not well informed on the recent research and advances in the field of Maritime Archaeology in comparison to other parts of the world. Therefore, it is proposed to bring out a special volume on 'Maritime Contacts of the Past: Deciphering Connections amongst communities' that would undoubtedly enhance the knowledge of the scholars and researchers as well. Scholars of different countries involved in this research were approached for contribution and 31 wide ranging articles related to Maritime Archaeology cover the region from the Mediterranean Sea to the Indian Ocean, from the North Pacific to the South Atlantic Ocean.
