Here is a guide to doing maritime history research online. Some of the links are dead, but it is still a good place to begin.

An important web site for those doing both prehistoric and historic archaeology in Maryland. Not only does it have pottery descriptions, and dating, but it also has a bibliography and glossaries. An excellent example of the potential of Web sites for the study of artifacts.
