The project develops an increased understanding of the environmental interactions of wreck sites and the (potentially cumulative) impacts on wreck sites from aggregate extraction. As a part of the project an assessment of the usefulness and potential of ecological data collected as part of archaeological wreck site surveys to offer the aggregates industry benefits arising out of the cost-effectiveness of integrated surveys was also completed. Along with an investigation of possible cross-over advantages from ecological and archaeological mitigation from the impacts of aggregate extraction.
