Some of the most exciting archaeological discoveries aren't made by Indiana Jones wannabes prowling through the jungle in search of forgotten cities or by Egyptologists looking for lost passageways in the pyramids. They are found by divers exploring shipwrecks such as the Titanic and the U.S.S. Monitor. Every now and then they even uncover the remains of human settlements sleeping beneath the waves. Underwater Archaeology is an inexpensive and colorful book about the people who do this work and what they sometimes bring to the surface--a great introduction to the subject. It is another fine title in the Discoveries series of books published by Harry N. Abrams.

Definitely worth the read! It's a little small in size, though.
The binding of the copy I have came apart before I finished reading it, and I don't think it would survive rough handling.
Overall, an OK value as an introductory book on underwater archaeology.
