A Journey Through Time on the Seafloor
Thousands of artefacts have been discoveredon the seafloor, all of which informour understanding of the marinehistoric environment.The most usefularchaeological finds arethose which can be dated. Some finds containenough information for their manufacture tobe assigned to a specific year. Other finds canbe assigned to a broad date range.This timeline shows how finds reportedthrough the Protocol can illustrate the broadexpanse of time from our ancestralpredecessors to the modern day.

DVD
Where a visit in person bythe ImplementationService is not possible,there is now an AwarenessDVD, which covers the basicinformation that staff need toknow. We would always recommend havinga visit in person, but the DVD can also be usedto support ongoing awareness, new staff inductions and staff on vessels.The awareness programme is an essential partof the Protocol. The more people know aboutwhat to look out for, the more finds arereported. A selection of these finds will beadded to the Protocol's teaching collection,which is then taken on further awarenessvisits. The opportunity for site staff to handlearchaeological artefacts during Protocolawareness visits encourages understandingof the types of archaeological materials thatmight be discovered during work on offshorerenewables.
The Importance of Awareness
The ORPAD offers free awareness visits anda range of material to help staff understandwhat they need to report through the Protocoland how to go about it.An awareness visit involves a member of theImplementation Service from WessexArchaeology giving a brief 30-minute talk andan archaeological artefact handling session toproject staff. The talk outlines the basics of the Protocol and explains why there isarchaeology on the seafloor. It also teachesstaff how to report archaeological finds andwhat essential information to record,including how to photograph finds andconservation tips on looking after finds whilethey are in your care.Currently, the teaching collection for handlingsessions contains archaeological findsreported via a similar Protocol for the marineaggregates industry – however, as more findsare reported via the Offshore RenewablesProtocol, the teaching collection will beexpanded.
