Submerged cultural resource management: a three phase process : an honors thesis (HONRS 499) /Danielle LaFleur.
This examination of Submerged Cultural Resource Management (SCRM) is divided into four sections. The first section explains the background of SCRM. Underwater archaeology plays a major part in the SCRM process and therefore, its background is important to know. The background section explains how underwater archaeology came to be and how it eventually became incorporated into Submerged Cultural Resource Management. The last three sections deal with the three-phase process of SCRM. The background search, testing, and mitigation phases are all explained using both the example of an underwater archaeology field school as well as generic, theoretical examples. All four sections link together to show just how important Submerged Cultural Resource Management is to preserving our world's maritime and terrestrial history.
