One can argue that academia has always existed in an information age; however, as the general public gains access to ever more advanced systems, it can be claimed that areas of academia require updating to maintain vitality in today’s world. When nautical archaeology produces inspiring reports, they are often at the hand of large budgets, rather than general day-to-day dissemination. This book proposes using state-of-the-art, low-budget digital technology from the outset of surveys, so that data may be recorded, analysed and disseminated, with seamless efficiency and great flair, while employing progressively less decontextualized means. Further, it conveys a simple methodology that allows for data collection by teams of volunteer divers. Big data, rapid analysis, and cross reference requirements have created a shift towards the need for advanced digital means, particularly relating to underwater archaeology, where survey time is limited. This book logs several years of studies, which respect in situ preservation, where the limits of technology were stretched to the cutting edge, using novel collection methods to populate custom-built numerical and visual databases, generating 2D and 3D digital models, and further creating a Virtual Reality “museum”. These advances not only propel the function of academia, but also promote the image of archaeology in an age where visualisation matters.

Deepwater archaeology uncovers secrets from the ancient maritime past . . . Thousands of shipwrecks and archaeological sites lie undiscovered in deep water, potentially holding important clues to our maritime past. Scientists have explored only a small percentage of the oceans' depths, as 98 percent of the seabed lies well beyond the reach of conventional diving. Ships from the Depths surveys the dramatic advances in technology over the last few years that have made it possible for scientists to locate, study, and catalogue archaeological sites in waters previously inaccessible to humans. Researcher and explorer Fredrik Søreide presents the development of deepwater archaeology since 1971, when Willard Bascom designed his Alcoa Seaprobe to locate and raise deepwater wrecks in the Mediterranean. Accompanied by descriptions and color photographs of deepwater projects and equipment, this book considers not only techniques that have been developed for location and observation of sites but also removal and excavation methods distinctive to these unique locations, far beyond the reach of scuba gear. Søreide provides an introduction to and survey of the history, development, and potential of this exciting branch of nautical archaeology. Scholars and field archaeologists will appreciate this handy compendium of the current state of the discipline and technology, and general readers will relish this comprehensive look at the challenges and opportunities associated with locating and studying historical and ancient shipwrecks in some of the world’s deepest waters.

Although underwater archaeology has assumed its rightful place as an important subdiscipline in the field, the published literature has not kept pace with the rapid increase in the number of both prehistoric and historic underwater sites. The editors have assembled an internationally distinguished roster of contributors to fill this gap. The book presents geographical and topical approaches, and focuses on technology, law, public and private institutional roles and goals, and the research and development of future technologies and public programs.

Vom Nutzen und Nachteil der Historie für das Leben

Die Historie ist mehr als nur Geschichtsschreibung und -forschung: sie ist ein Antrieb für das Lebens, motiviert es und liefert das Sinngerüst. Nietzsche hält kein Plädoyer gegen die Geschichte, sondern betont, dass Geschichte unverzichtbar ist für ein kultur- und wertorientiertes Leben. Gleichzeitig darf sich das Leben nicht der Geschichte beugen, muss in der Gegenwart stehen und zielgerichtet die Zukunft im Auge behalten. Nietzsche verlangt mit der Neuorientierung der Historie einen neuen Begriff der Kultur, der - wie vieles bei ihm - auf der Vorstellung des antiken Eros beruht. So bedeutet Genealogie für Nietzsche nicht historische Forschung, sondern kritische Erklärung von Gegenwartsphänomenen anhand theoretischer Ableitungen aus der Geschichte. Im Mittelpunkt steht eine »Deplausibilisierung« (E. Müller) bisheriger Narrative durch historisch gestützte psychologische Thesen. Großen Einfluss hat dieses Konzept Nietzsches auf Michel Foucault.
