Dear NewsWarp Members:
I am Elena Pranckenaite from Lithuania, I am working with wetland objects – lake dwellings in Lithuania.
A few weeks ago we have published a book, concerning wetland archaeology in the Baltic region. I think, that researches can find some interesting material from this region
Thank you very much,

About this Publication: This is the first publication to provide an overview of the archaeological investigations of wetland sites throughout the entire Baltic region. The book aims to provide a thorough historiography of its subject by presenting the specifics of this region through a discussion of ongoing and already completed investigations, as well as presenting the concise results of these reports and the types of objects that have been discovered. This collection of articles consists of chapters prepared by experienced researchers, as well as younger scholars from Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Russia, Poland and Germany, all of whom specialise in wetland archaeology objects. The separate chapters of this book analyse the prehistorical archaeological objects of waterlogged places that have previously been investigated and also provide information about ongoing investigations. Moreover, under discussion in these articles are the specific problems relating to the preservation of the objects’ themselves, the investigative methodologies applied, the separate types of object under analysis, as well as reconstruction of natural environment and potential for the future perspectives.
