Explosive News for Coastal & Marine


Unexploded ordnance training went with a figurative, but thankfully not literal, bang today at Wessex Archaeology’s Salisbury office.
Dave Welch of Ramora UK visited to train members of our Coastal & Marine team in the types of ordnance they may encounter during work offshore, in the intertidal zone or during post-excavation. Given the varied nature of our project work, members of our diving, geoservices and marine protocol teams were all in attendance. 
It is estimated that 10% of all ordnance dropped during recent conflicts failed to detonate and can pose a real hazard when encountered today – especially given the instability that can result from submersion in a marine environment. 
Dave brought inert examples, and his expertise, to train us in how to keep safe whilst we protect our coastal and marine heritage.
