Until only recently it was believed that any aboriginal material located in offshore areas must be the result of random loss, beach erosion, ceremonial deposition, etc., rather than the presence of an actual inundated site. No systematic attempts, therefore, were made to locate sites of this type because it was felt that they simply did not exist. Discoveries in Florida and California have now disproved this and a systematic approach to site location is needed.
