Robert van de Noort makes such an ambitious effort ... he is well placed to combine elements rarely observed on an exceptionally broad canvas ... [He] gives a concise, readable and iconoclastic view expanding the boundaries of period-based, regionally focused and methodologically driven source literature. James Barrett, Times Literary Supplement By viewing the North Sea as a lived space and a living landscape this work deepens our understanding of the archaeology of the region. As such the book is successful in its desire to make the sea good to think and provides a useful text for students and all those interested in the scope of maritime archaeology or the North Sea region. R. H. Farr, Journal of Maritime Archaeology an interesting and different book that ... deserves to find a home on the bookshelves of those with a broad interest in maritime and landscape archaeology.
