ANTH 318 1-16-08 Pompeii effect - Shipwrecks often capture a single how the city of Pompeii was frozen in the lava - you get a single instance, which gives a cleaner picture of what life was like How do we go about doing underwater archaeology? - Primary accounts: what people write down about their daily lives - you can get a lot of information about the ship and the time period - you can find shipwrecks from accounts of survivors; you can find out what the cargo was by looking at cargo manifests - We do archaeology to find out about the people who couldn’t write down information about their lives - To find a shipwreck, you can talk to captains, recreational divers, fishermen, etc in order to find out where people are finding things - Remote sensing is another way to find underwater shipwrecks - There are three kinds: magnetometer (big metal detector), sub bottom profiler (cuts a swath through the sediments to see what’s there), sonar (uses waves to create a picture of the bottom of the ocean)
