Troubled Waters
Developing a New Approach to Maritime and Underwater Cultural Heritage Management in Sub-Saharan Africa
Jonathan Sharfman
This volume examines perspectives on maritime and underwater cultural heritage (MUCH) in southern Africa and proposes new management approaches to advance protection and public engagement. By redefining the maritime historical narratives in countries that have predominantly interpreted their maritime past through colonial shipwrecks, it is possible to create an environment in which stakeholders become active participants in heritage management.
