Part of the The Springer Series in Underwater Archaeology book series (SSUA)

Abstract

What is now the state of Rhode Island has always been dominated by its great water features, Narragansett Bay and Rhode Island Sound. The sound provides access to the bay from the North Atlantic Ocean, and the bay provides access to the whole interior of New England via the state’s northern river valleys.
