Published by Wessex Archaeology
Englands Historic Seascapes is an ALSF project initiated by English Heritage to take an established technique of land management, Historic Landscape Characterisation, into the marine zone. Wessex Archaeology was commissioned to develop a methodology for seascape characterisation, using a pilot area in Liverpool Bay. The resulting characterisation is presented as a series of GIS layers, supported by multimedia. Seascape characterisation can be used to alert aggregate resource managers to historic environment issues affecting their areas of interest, and to help in the scoping of EIA's

within aggregate dredging areas. We haveadvanced the use of high-resolution sidescan,multibeam and magnetometer survey, incombination with acoustic positioned ROVand diver surveys, to provide informationthat can be used to make decisions aboutthe character and importance of wreck sites,and about mitigation. Another element of theproject has compared the results of geophysicalsurveys at different line spacings andinstrument settings, to help guide industry.

on behalf of ODPM. We are using surveymethods already in use by the aggregate industryto investigate and understand deposits andartefacts laid down when the seabed was stillland, more than 8,000 years ago. High resolutionshallow seismic surveys, vibrocoring and benthicgrabbing have been carried out and processedusing different methods to help understandsediment architecture in aggregate dredgingzones off the Sussex coast, in the Eastern EnglishChannel, and off Great Yarmouth. The data isbeing combined in order to provide guidanceto industry about how to avoid impactingimportant archaeological remains.

is not always clear how or why theymight be considered to be important. Thisproject, administered by English Heritagewith the support of the ALSF, has developed aframework through which the archaeologicalimportance of shipwrecks can be gauged. Theframework is designed to be comprehensiveand transparent, and is based on a series of questions that address all of the key phasesof the construction, life and demise of a ship.The framework can be used within the EIAprocess to help decide whether impacts onshipwrecks will have a significant effect.
