The Caribbean: Bibliography
The Caribbean has been subjected to a great deal of reporting on underwater sites for a variety of reasons. One of the driving elements has been the search for vessels used in the earliest exploration of the area by Europeans. Another has been the national interest of small states seeking to learn more about their history. The presence of artifacts, often of saleable quality has led salvors into the area as well. The Caribbean area is presented in bibliographic form because it is well known and reporting is fairly good.
