Stage 3


Seabed sampling


Stage 3 of the project involved a programme of seabed sampling with the aim of establishing the presence of any remaining archaeological material since the original discovery. Three sampling techniques were trialled: clamshell grabs, still photographic survey, and beam trawl. Further animal remains and flint artefacts were recovered using the clamshell grab from a particular region of Area 240. These results have led to a significant improvement toward our understanding of the character of the historic environment in the region.
