Underwater archaeology might be considered one of the most recent sub-fields of archaeology. It already published many books on theme, which enables one to get interested to study its development. Those books published not just texts, which presented discourse changes through time. They also published lots of photographs, which have their own discourses. As being so, the objective of this research is to study those photographs, noting how gender relations between the professionals involved with underwater archaeology are built. (AU)
