River archaeology is consisting of underwater research of the rivers themselves, and also the archaeology of the valleys/floodplains with special interest in humanenvironmental interactions (reconstructing space, environment, economy and society on the basis of the material culture and traces of human impacts). As historical hydrology is occupying similar questions from the hydrologist’s point of view, the combination of different approaches offers fruitful cooperation for both disciplines. The paper presents the type, nature and problems of archaeological record through recent work in the Drava river basin.
