Coastal and Marine Archaeology

Building survey and archaeological excavation was undertaken by ASE at the Belle Tout lighthouse which sits within a probable Iron Age coastal hillfort

Archaeology South-East is also able to help with projects involving coastal and marine archaeology. We have staff qualified in the survey of inter-tidal areas, and we work with specialist sub-contractors in recording and managing under-water sites.

Our aim is to provide clear guidance on the archaeological implications of projects affecting estuarine, coastal and offshore resources - using a similar suite of techniques and approaches to those that inform our terrestrial work. We are guided in this work by our academic colleagues at the Institute of Archaeology .

Clients include the Port of London Authority and P&O, Kent County Council, Babtie and Royal Haskoning.

Archaeology South-East has also produced a benchmark report on behalf of Historic England, which reviews the suite of projects funded by the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund, including recent fundamental research on maritime heritage.
