Shared Heritage: Joint responsibilities in the Management of British Warship Wrecks Overseas

This is a collection of papers that were given at a seminar at the University of Wolverhampton on 8 July 2008.

The papers consider case studies of cooperation between the United Kingdom and other sovereign states in the preservation and study of British wrecks, and examples of best practice in achieving the delicate balance between access for archaeologists and recreational divers to the underwater cultural heritage and the damage that can be caused by this access. Many of the papers exemplify the value recreational divers may have in discovering, documenting and preserving underwater cultural heritage.
