This Article will analyze the current legal problems confronting marine archaeology and make some recommendations for accommodating the various interests involved. In its most general form,the problem is two-fold: 1) What are the rights of marine archaeologists to explore for and excavate relevant material on the seabed? and 2) What are the property rights in those finds? The discussion will consider these issues in that order.
