The Protocol, which entered its third year at the start of April, provides a mechanism through which archaeological discoveries encountered during offshore work can be reported and protected.
The second year of the Protocol saw a huge rise in the number of reports received as 76 individual reports were raised, some detailing more than one find. This is 19 times greater than the number of reports raised in the 2011-2012 reporting year and a fantastic testament to the sharp eyes and dedication of those working in the offshore renewables industry.
