This fact has far-reaching consequences: for the reconstruction of past coastlines and oceanographic conditions; for the submergence of coastal and peri-coastal settlements associated with evidence for seafaring and marine resource exploitation; for the consequent loss of relevant evidence and the bias this introduces into the surviving archaeological record; and for an understanding of the environmental and socioeconomic impact of sea level rise at the end of the last glaciation. In this chapter, I chart the increasing acceptance of the need to research the palaeo-shorelines and submerged landscapes of the continental shelf in the face of prolonged scepticism that this is feasible or worthwhile, and discuss the evidence now emerging for why this is important, and how it can be explored further.
