Archaeology Finds Reporting Service Newsletter
The Implementation Service was createdin 2005 to allow BMAPA staff to reportarchaeological finds discovered duringaggregate dredging. Since the last issueof Dredged Up, in spring 2008, nearly 100individual finds have been reported throughthe Protocol. This is a fantastic testamentto the continued hard work and eagle eyesof industry staff in helping to preserve oursubmerged heritage.The Implementation Service is supportedby an Awareness Programme which aims,through site visits, workshops and DredgedUp to raise awareness of the service andthe finds reported through it. The ALSF hasrenewed funding for the programme until2011.
