From ships left high and dry after the retraction of the Aral Sea to Titanic at the bottom of the Atlantic, from a rusting railway graveyard in Bolivia to abandoned World War II cars in a Swedish forest, from aircraft frozen in time in Antarctica to streetcars sidelined in Brooklyn, New York, Abandoned Wrecks explores over 100 fascinating sites from all around the world. Aside from the peculiar beauty of rusting hulks on forgotten battlefields, anemone-covered battleships on the seabed and cars being consumed by forests, the images and text introduce us to unusual stories: how a car standing on its nose in the Nevada desert has inspired an artist into making a design feature from junked cars, a Canadian schooner that sank in 1885 and rests preserved to this day in a harbor in Lake Huron, and a space shuttle left gathering dust in a hangar. With 170 outstanding color photographs of cars, trains, ships, submarines, tanks, aircraft and even a space shuttle, Abandoned Wrecks is a brilliant pictorial work showcasing these battered time capsules and their stories of wars, natural disasters, changing fortunes, tastes and fashions.

The legal protection of the underwater cultural heritage is a field in which there is growing international interest. Shipwrecks and other underwater cultural remains in every maritime zone are threatened both by activities ‘directed at’ them, such as treasure hunting, and by activities ‘incidentally affecting’ them, such as mineral exploration and exploitation, pipeline and cable-laying, dredging, and fishing. Since the first edition of this collection (published in 1999), the urgent need for an international legal framework to regulate these activities has been formally recognised by the adoption in 2001 of the UNESCO Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage. While the prospects for this Convention remain uncertain, it will undoubtedly have a profound influence on national laws and practice in this field. This second collection of essays examines the present state of law, policy and practice in sixteen different jurisdictions around the world in light of the 2001 Convention. Among other things, the viewpoint of each jurisdiction in respect of the Convention is considered and the impact that the Convention is already having, and is likely to have in the future, is explored. Eight of the essays are entirely new, and several additional jurisdictions are covered (Finland, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and Norway). The other essays have been thoroughly updated and revised to take account of the Convention. The contributors come from a variety of backgrounds, but all have specialist knowledge and experience of their particular jurisdiction and a keen interest in the field.
