This volume came about as a result of a session run at
the (then) IfA conference in Glasgow in 2014 by the
Maritime Affairs Group. The focus of the conference
was ‘research in practice’, in particular, the challenges
that are posed to heritage professionals regarding
value, quality, dissemination, and accessibility of the
archaeological resource. In maritime archaeology, this
can be a particular issue with the additional practical
considerations of allowing access to what is often
underwater or inaccessible.

The Australian Historic Shipwreck Preservation Project
(AHSPP) has focussed on the reburial and in-situ
preservation of shipwrecks and colonial shipbuilding.
In 2011 researchers identified a number of criteria that
a research site should meet in addressing these topics,
the shipwreck must be identified as ‘at-risk’;
the site should be logistically accessible;
the site has been extensively researched,
monitored, and perhaps partially excavated
the current managing agency must support the
AHSPP and have the capacity to carry out the
long-term monitoring of the site.

This article presents a novel methodology for the
underwater documentation of pile fields in
archaeological lakeside settlement sites using Structure
from Motion (SfM). Mapping the piles of such sites is an
indispensable basis for the exploitation of the high-
resolution absolute chronological data gained through
dendrochronology. In a case study at the underwater
site of Ploca, Micov Grad at Lake Ohrid, North
Macedonia, nine consecutive 10 m2
strips and a 6 m2 excavation section were uncovered,
the situation documented, and the woodpiles sampled.
The documents are classified chronologically.

The shallow water environment is one of the most
dynamic elements, subject to rapid sedimentary flows
and of significant interest to human activities. This
environment pose severe challenges due to shallow
water, strong waves, strong currents, large tidal range,
and fine gas, which restrict sound penetration. To
optimize the characteristics of acoustic profiler with a
parametric transmitting array in the scope of
underwater archeology and monitoring of underwater
engineering objects, theoretical studies of the influence
of real conditions on the work of parametric hydro-
acoustic systems and of the marine soils and bottom
sediments features are presented in this study.
