Introduction

This project is a survey of the archaeology of the Isle of Wight focussing on areas which produce aggregate. It is funded by the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund (ALSF) administered by English Heritage (EH) Historic Environment Enabling Programme (HEEP). Similar projects have been carried out in other counties across England, including Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Norfolk, Suffolk, East Sussex, Bath and North East Somerset and West Berkshire.

The primary aims of the project were to improve knowledge of the archaeological resource of the aggregate producing areas of the Isle of Wight and to facilitate more informed advice concerning the impacts and mitigation of present and future aggregates extraction on the Island.
