Our Coastal & Marine team are looking forward to attending the 2017 Nautical Archaeology Society conference in Portsmouth this weekend. The theme of the conference this year is ‘Discovery is Just the Beginning’, and the conference will not only explore the legacy of the Nautical Archaeology Society’s education programme but also showcase nautical archaeology projects from around the world.

As one of the sponsors of the conference, the team will have a display stand, showing some finds from the Marine Aggregate Industry Archaeological Protocol and handing out copies of the latest newsletter, Dredged Up. They will also be raising awareness for the Marine Antiquities Scheme; an initiative that encourages the reporting of finds from beach combers, dog walkers, divers, fishermen and other coastal and sea users around the country. There will also be short video on some of the recent work the Coastal & Marine team have been doing this year.
