Abstract

Archaeological investigation of the battleship USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor provided the first assessment of a shipwreck that included its mythic and symbolic importance. The study of Arizona also demonstrated material evidence of anticipatory recycling and a sense of strategic vulnerability, while also demonstrating the influence of alternative views of the past.
