Abstract:
Wessex Archaeology (WA) was commissioned by English Heritage (EH), funded through the Marine Aggregate Levy Sustainability Fund (MALSF) to conduct a project concerning the application of geophysical and geotechnical/seabed sampling methodologies to marine aggregate deposits that have been demonstrated to contain potential pre-Devensian or Devensian artefactual material. This stage of the project involved a palaeo-environmental sampling survey in which vibrocores were acquired at 10 specific locations within Area 240. These locations were selected to target locations that would elucidate the sedimentary sequence and depositional environments identified in Area 240, and, in particular, the sediments from which artefacts are thought to derive in this area. The selection targeted sediment units that would provide palaeo-environmental material allowing for the assessment, dating and reconstruction of the former landsurfaces within Area 240. The vibrocore survey took place between the 10th May and 13th May onboard the VOS Baltic. The survey was sub-contracted to Fugro Alluvial Offshore Ltd. as part of a joint coring program between Wessex Archaeology and University of Southampton National Oceanographic Centre. Two cores were acquired at each location, one in a clear liner for the purpose of geoarchaeological logging and one in an opaque liner for future OSL dating.
