Full Description

Conditional planning consent for dredging adjacent to the slipway and the shore of the marina at Woolverstone required a programme of archaeological monitoring. Previous dredging here exposed an undated human skull within the underlying gravel (SMR reference WLV 045) and there is potential for archaeological structures to survive on the foreshore. No features or artefacts of archaeological significance were observed either on the dredged foreshore or from the screened deposits, however, it is acknowledged that the nature of the work and gauge of the screen used made the identification of archaeological material very difficult (1).
