This chapter provides a literature review of international examples that concern the study of abandoned vessels spanning many thousands of years. The international case studies presented illustrate that discarded watercraft have a long and significant history. They also demonstrate that abandoned vessels are amongst some of the oldest and most intact specimens of craft encountered by maritime archaeologists to date.
