ALSF England’s Shipping

Large numbers of shipwrecks, unidentified anomalies, and debris have built up on the seabed over the twelve millenia of maritime activity in UK waters. Only a fraction of this submerged cultural resource is currently recorded.
The England’s Shipping project was undertaken by Wessex Archaeology to research ways of mapping shipping movements recorded in historical archives. The data gathered was mapped using a Geographic Information System (GIS) and required the development of a methodology for representing historical data spatially. The project was funded by that part of the Aggregate Levy Sustainability Fund (ALSF) distributed by English Heritage.
