That Sinking Feeling: Wetland Investigations of the Origins of Venice [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
It is well known that Venice has always had an intimate association with the sea. Despite the historical interest the origins of the city have, until relatively recently, remained cloaked in obscurity. Until the mid-1980s Venice remained one of the few major historical cities in Europe where urban archaeology had yet to uncover significant information. Over the last two decades the situation has changed as shown by fifteen sites with early levels. Despite the difficulties of working in a tidal lagoon at considerable depths, archaeology has begun to chart the earliest inhabitation. This paper outlines some of the findings and the methodological approach adopted.
