Welcome to SPLASHCOS
SPLASHCOS - Submerged Prehistoric Archaeology and Landscapes of the Continental Shelf - is a four-year research network (2009 to 2013) funded by the European Commission under its COST program (Cooperation in Science and Technology) as COST Action TD0902.
Its aim is to bring together archaeologists, marine geoscientists, heritage agencies, and commercial and industrial organizations interested in researching, managing and preserving the archives of archaeological and palaeoclimatic information locked up on the drowned prehistoric landscapes of the European continental shelf, and to disseminate that knowledge to a wider audience.
Details of the programme and membership of the Action are given in the Memorandum of Understanding, in the MoU Addendum, which gives details of the history of the proposal and publications, and on the COST website.
The formal term of the Action is now completed. The draft final report is available here and the final version will be made available on the COST website. Publications resulting from the Action are currently in progress, members remain active in conducting new research, and details will be posted as news items on this site from time to time.
