Early History of the

English Channel



Archaeological sites are recorded on the current coasts bordering the English Channel, and are known to exist in the submerged area between.  Undertaking a detailed desk-based survey of the coastal areas, including recording known submerged sites, finds and features, will provide a comprehensive listing of the known archaeological resource.  This will be fully referenced and linked to visual images where appropriate.

The listing will be presented as a database linked to the GIS model.  As well as providing a detailed record of the current understanding of the coastal resource, it will be used as the base for predictive modelling of potential site locations under the English Channel.
