Discussion of current research in Maritime Archaelogy highlighting exacavation of various 16th century Spanish shipwrecks in Pensacola Bay.

Maritime archaeology is a discipline that studies human interaction with the sea, lakes and rivers through the study of vessels, shore side facilities, cargoes and human remains. One speciality is underwater archaeology , which studies the past through any submerged remains. An other specialty within maritime archaeology is nautical archaeology, which studies vessel construction and use.
