Maritime archaeologists have until recently focused on the excavation of sites on land, but advances in underwater techniques of survey and excavation now allow direct investigation of submerged sites and even landscapes, where preservation, especially of organic remains, is often better than in land sites. The potential importance of underwater archaeology is demonstrated by recent research on submerged Mesolithic sites in Denmark.
