Archaeocast 13: Coastal and Marine Geophysics on the North Sea

Surveyor Tina Michel aboard the Wessex ExplorerSurveyor Tina Michel aboard the Wessex ExplorerIn this edition of archaeocast we join our coastal and marine geophysical survey team on the North Sea.
Surveyor Tina Michel describes the work that Wessex Archaeology is doing as we investigate an important Palaeolithic site 8 miles east of Great Yarmouth in Norfolk. It was from this site, in aggregate licence area 240, that 75 handaxes were dredged and reported through the BMAPA/EH Protocol in February 2008, which has been described as the most significant find of Palaeolithic material ever to be retrieved from below the North Sea.
This edition of archaeocast was recorded by Time Travelling by Water on behalf of English Heritage, who are funding the project through the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund.
Archaeocast 13 was recorded on location by Gemma Ingason. Editing and post-production were undertaken on dry land at Wessex Archaeology's headquarters in Salisbury, England, by Gemma Ingason and Tom Goskar.
