More than 7,000 shipwrecks have occurred in Australian waters since the loss of the Trial in 1622. Shipwreck Archaeology in Australia provides an up-to-date summary of the most significant maritime archaeology projects undertaken in Australia over the past 30 years. The book contains comprehensive maps and many previously unpublished photographs documenting leading maritime archaeologists' work on some of Australia's most important shipwreck sites. It tells the story of how a unique underwater resource has been conserved and protected as part of Australia's rich maritime heritage.
