This book summaries 10 years of work by the Maritime Archaeology Trust (formerly the Hampshire and Wight Trust for Maritime Archaeology) between 1991 and 2001.

The Solent and adjacent coasts are a special area for exploring the human past. Sea level rise at the end of the last Ice Age turned a river valley into the Solent, submerging prehistoric settlements and creating the Isle of Wight.

This Ten Year Review describes how the HWTMA, launched in 1991, has been undertaking research to reveal the wide range of local maritime sites. This has included work on both wreck and non wreck sites, in the Solent, its harbours, its rivers, and along the coasts of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. Disseminating the results of this research has been achieved through exhibitions, lectures, publications and web sites.

This review draws conclusions on work undertaken until 2001 and the management of the maritime archaeological resources of this area.
