The volume reports the interventions of the VIII Cycle of Lessons organized by the University of Siena on Applied Research in Archeology. The texts are able to summarize the complexity of underwater archeology, the breadth and articulation of themes and problems addressed, the variability of the environments and contexts in which the research takes place, in fact unified only by the single common denominator constituted from the water. So not only submarine archeology, but tout court underwater archeology, of rivers, lakes, submerged settlements, ports, archeology and naval architecture, etc .; all with a broad chronological spectrum, from prehistory to the modern age. The sections in which the volume is divided allow to deepen on the one hand the situation on the foundations and the state of the discipline, the deepening of its theoretical status and the analysis of the procedures, methodologies and techniques used, on the other hand the analysis of the historical use of the data acquired during archaeological research, and finally the legislative and technical-bureaucratic aspects.
