Description :
The author describes the environmental conditions and exposure of prehistoric and archaeologic sites where artifacts have been recovered, dated, and preserved, and others where surveys indicate probable human occupation. It is concluded that in favourable environments (submerged karstic caves, sink-holes, estuarine lagoonal or peat deposits) human occupation sites can survive at least one marine transgression. Several examples are given in the Mediterranean, northwest Europe, the USA and South Australia. (P. A. Pirazzoli).
