Abstract:
Cornwall County Council's Historic Environment Service Projects (HES) and Penzance-based maritime archaeologist Kevin Camidge were commissioned by English Heritage to carry out the Phase 2 field assessment of the Marine Environmental Assessment (MEA) of the Royal Anne Galley, a protected wreck lying off the Lizard Point. Although the Royal Anne Galley lies close inshore in about 6m of seawater, the area is surrounded by rocks and large Atlantic swells make access difficult. The rocky seabed is a very dynamic environment with deep gullies and crevices obscured by thick kelp. No organic material has been recovered to date and the site seems to be artefact-bearing rather than containing any remaining ship's structure. Because of a financial ceiling set by English Heritage the methodology for field assessment was a pared down version of the original strategy for field assessment and monitoring of the site which was presented in the Phase 1 desk-based assessment report . The following objectives were successfully accomplished during the field assessment: a bathymetric survey was undertaken, a marine biological assessment was undertaken, a water sample was collected and analysed, sediment samples were collected and analysed, dispersal monitoring objects (bricks and spheres) were installed on the site, objects to monitor the biological degradation of timber were installed on the site. It was recommended that at least one recovery/inspection should be undertaken in 2010; the results from this will inform whether any further monitoring is required. The Royal Anne site lies within the draft Lizard Point Special Area of Conservation (dSAC) and the implications of this for future site management strategies should be discussed with Natural England.
