Abstract and Keywords

This chapter addresses the issues faced by wet site excavators, which include issues associated with dewatering; sampling and data management; and the excavation, maintenance, and transportation of finds. It argues that wet-site potentials are phenomenal, and can capture the archaeologist's and the public's imagination faster than almost any other kind of site. This can lead to very real opportunities for site visitation and should be viewed as a positive educational opportunity, but one that needs to be planned for.

Keywords: wetland sites, wetland excavation, wetland archaeology, sampling, data management, dewatering, transportation
