Introduction

The Assessment of Archaeology within Marine Aggregate project was undertaken by the Hampshire and Wight Trust for Maritime Archaeology and commissioned by English Heritage through the Aggregate Levy Sustainability Fund. The principle aim of the project was to undertake a review of how archaeology is considered in the Environmental Statements (ESs) which accompany marine aggregate dredging licence applications.

Marine extracted sand and gravel are a key resource for construction and coastal defence schemes and 21% used in England and Wales is from marine sources. To ensure these benefits are sustainable marine aggregate extraction is licensed. Licence applications are accompanied by an ES which outlines the potential impact of extraction and aims to reduce potential damage to the environment. Maritime heritage and archaeology issues are considered in an ES.

The study considered a selection of ESs dating from across the period for which thei production has been required in support of licence applications before focussing on ESs submitted since 1998, when the application procedure underwent major changes. The review uses key legislation and guidance from the last two decades as measures for best practice.
