Archaeologists explore ocean floor for clues to early coastal settlement
Anthropologists in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences are identifying new sites to study archaeology that are fathoms, not feet, under the surface.

Anthropology professor Kevin McBride and doctoral candidate David Robinson are scoping out early coastal human settlement sites, now under water, that could reveal clues to how the Americas were settled.

McBride says early submerged sites may yield evidence of how the earliest coastal residents lived and how they got here.

This doesn't seem related to the Ballard project (article at the link no longer functions).
