Early Ships And Boats

Published by Wessex Archaeology
The Early Ships and Boats project comprises a strategic desk-based assessment of known and dated vessels from the Prehistoric period up to 1840. At present, very few boats and ships are offered statutory protection in England in comparison to the large numbers of known and dated wrecks and even greater numbers of recorded losses of boats and ships in English waters. This project is part of a national programme of planned designation to ensure that current or future threats are addressed through the full weight of statutory protection in relation to the National Heritage Protection Plan.
Data was acquired from primary and secondary sources, audited and entered into a Microsoft Access database linked to ESRI ArcGIS 9.3 mapping software. The data was assessed and characterised within the project database and selected records were enhanced. The dataset was considered alongside the non-statutory criteria for designation and the English Heritage wreck selection guide to identify sites for selective investigation.
The final Early Boats and Ship database comprises 384 records of pre-1840 vessels including 47 designated wrecks, 133 records of undesignated wrecks, six boat burials, 28 historic vessels, 132 logboats and 38 findspots of craft or timbers. Following assessment, 88 of these were identified as candidates for selective investigation.
