The Protocol, which entered its third year at thestart of April, provides a mechanism through whicharchaeological discoveries encountered duringoffshore work can be reported and protected.The second year of the Protocol saw a huge risein the number of reports received as 76 individualreports were raised, some detailing more than onefind. This is 19 times greater than the number of reports raised in the 2011-2012 reporting yearand a fantastic testament to the sharp eyes anddedication of those working in the offshorerenewables industry.The Protocol continues to provide umbrella supportfor the protection of heritage encountered during allactivities associated with offshore renewable energydevelopments, where a retained archaeologist is notavailable. To contact the Implementation Serviceteam about finds, the operation of the Protocol orfor advice on any aspect of the protection of ourmarine heritage, contact Wessex Archaeology (WA)using the details on this page.
