In recent decades sophisticated survey techniques have been applied by archaeologists to document human activity on land (Cherry et al., 1991; Malone et al., 1994). Similar advances have occurred with survey and exploration techniques recording shallow water archaeological resources (Bass 1987, 1989) and deep water remains (Ballard 1993; McCann and Freed, 1994).
