Introduction

This project takes the form of a desk-based archaeological assessment to examine the relationship between the historic environment and beach replenishment schemes, by exploring the deposition of archaeological materials on replenished beaches and their former offshore contexts. The area of coast between Mablethorpe and Skegness has been used as a case study, as a major beach replenishment scheme has recently taken place here. The project involves the analysis of data sources and assessment of their usefulness in identifying the potential archaeological impact of beach schemes. This process is carried out with a view to applying the methods outlined in this document to other beach replenishment schemes around the UK.
