Abstract:
Paper presenting an approach to the management of intertidal deposits aimed at monitoring erosion within the Humber estuary, where previous archaeological finds include Bronze Age boat remains and trackways. Two sites were investigated, and the results from these demonstrate both the high rate of sediment removal and the highly variable nature of intertidal erosion. It is argued that global figures relating to rates of erosion are wholly inappropriate when attempting to manage archaeological deposits that have survived in intertidal environments, and that management of such archaeologically rich but threatened landscapes is only possible through regular quantitative monitoring. Such an approach offers coastal protection authorities an opportunity to assess the long-term progress of erosion and coastal change. It is suggested that this methodology could be employed alongside management agreements within those particular coastal cells or process units that have been identified in a Shoreline Management Plan.
