Abstract:
Describes the excavation of several features threatened by coastal erosion. These proved to contain charcoal and faunal assemblages (including some worked bone), which were radiocarbon dated to 1010-1190 and 980-1160 cal AD. The charcoal accumulations are interpreted as beacon fires to guide fishing boats. The project was undertaken partly to assess the value of partial and simple excavation of small sites under imminent threat of destruction due to coastal erosion. It is concluded that, whilst a more thorough excavation would probably have retrieved more data, this type of investigation provided useful information which would otherwise have been entirely lost.
