Day of Archaeology – 11th July 2014

As it’s the Day of Archaeology it’s time for a long overdue update to the project.

Since January we’ve been processing all the site survey data, photographs and other elements of the project records; researching in more detail some of our key findings; above and below the water.

A key element of the project is to place our findings within a landscape context, to link in the influences of human and environmental change on the archaeological record we can see today.

The initial project report will be coming soon, there are a few bits and pieces of analysis still to come in. But, overall we have some fascinating new discoveries,  some compelling reinterpretations of coastal archaeology, which date to a wide range of periods.
