"Useful for anyone who identifies with the younger generation of maritime archaeologists, this volume simply refutes the atheoretical stance that largely permeated the discipline in the past. ... This book remains useful for thinking about how shipping mishaps affected people and what these events meant in short- and long-term perspectives. This text ultimately demonstrates that the concept of shipping mishaps deserves continued archaeological attention." (Madeline Fowler, Journal of Anthropological Research, Vol. 73 (3), 2017)
