Conference Session
Submerged Cave Archaeology: Methods, Theory, and Recent Findings

Submerged caves present different challenges and opportunities than traditional underwater sites. Springs, flooded caverns, sinkholes, cave lakes, sumps, and siphons are significant not only as features in ancient landscapes, but also sheltered environments that protect cultural material from nature’s dynamic forces. A relatively small number of submerged cave sites have been published; however, interest is on the rise as archaeologists realize the potential of these sites. Publications show that approaches differ widely based on the background and training of the archaeologist. This session acts as a discussion for this developing subdiscipline while examining methodological approaches, theoretical frameworks for interpreting cave sites, and recent findings.
