[Extract] Maritime archaeology is arguably the most recognised of the Australianist archaeologies, having a general appeal and a popular following that are the envy of most other sub-fields. However, because much of this has come from high-profile shipwreck-oriented research and public archaeology, there is often the mistaken assumption, even by other archaeologists, that maritime archaeology is solely concerned with the investigation of shipwrecks, or is primarily a set of techniques applied to sites located underwater.
