The Artefacts from the Sea project focused on two study areas on the eastern and southern coasts of England. Click on an area on the map to explore the enhanced data and find out more about the sources consulted.
 
Humber-Tees Study Area: defined as the coastline between the River Humber and the River Tees and corresponding to the dredging areas around the Humber Estuary and in the North Sea.
 
Hampshire-Sussex Study Area: defined as the coastline from Christchurch Bay in the west to the Hampshire/West Sussex border in the east and corresponding to the dredging areas around the Isle of Wight.
 
The landward limit of the study areas was delineated by the high water mark or cliff top although in some cases this limit was extended inland so that information could be included that would enhance understanding of certain areas. The seaward limit was not specifically defined although most institutions only hold data within the 12 mile territorial limit.
