SPLASHCOS is a four-year research network funded by the European Commission under its COST program (Cooperation in Science and Technology) from 2009 to 2013.
Its aim is to bring together archaeologists, marine geophysicists, environmental scientists, heritage agencies, and commercial and industrial organizations interested in researching, managing and preserving the archives of archaeological and palaeoclimatic information locked up on the drowned prehistoric landscapes of the European continental shelf, and to disseminate that knowledge to a wider public.
Details of the programme and membership of the Action are given in the Memorandum of Understanding, in the MoU Addendum, which gives details of the history of the proposal and publications, and on the COST website.
An item on SPLASHCOS has been published in the online Project Gallery of Antiquity, the quarterly journal of World Archaeology. Click here for more details...
