Bibliographical note

Funding Information:
The ‘Maritime Endangered Archaeology’ (MarEA) project is a five-year programme (2019–2024) supported by the Arcadia Fund. The MarEA project is a joint effort between the Universities of Southampton and Ulster, working in partnership with the ‘Endangered Archaeology of the Middle East and North Africa’ (EAMENA) project in Oxford. The programme's central aim is to document and assess threats to the maritime archaeology of the Middle East and North Africa region. It also endeavours to establish professional networks and reinforce existing partnerships with governments, universities and NGOs from the Middle East and North Africa region. More broadly, the MarEA project aims to form global collaborations for the sustainable management of endangered maritime heritage ().

Funding Information:
We would like to thank the EAMENA team (Oxford, Durham and Leicester Universities) for their collaboration, and we also acknowledge support from antiquities departments, archaeologists and scholars from the Middle East and North Africa region.
