Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned reportpeer-review

Electronic versions


The development of a Research Framework for the Archaeology of Wales was a challenge accepted by the archaeological community in 2001. Wales needs to know about its past. Understanding a culture’s history is vital to its continuing growth and development. Archaeologists in Wales have been contributing to this for some two centuries, unearthing sites, discovering past landscapes, exploring underwater cultural heritage, and seeking to interpret what they may tell us. But the past still holds many secrets.
Since the start it has been recognised that any framework for research must be regularly reviewed and updated. This document represents a third review of the maritime theme focussing on seafaring and seascapes, marine transport, maritime identities, material culture, conservation, and frameworks for management. It presents an overview of progress made against identified research priorities, and new priorities established through consultation and peer review.
The document also includes a selected bibliography, links to key legislation, and useful contacts.
