Volunteers call for Coastal Heritage Project

Digging, diving and data-recording opportunities are on offer to volunteers who would like to take part in the Coastal Heritage Project being led by the New Forest National Park Authority.

The project was set up to fully record the archaeology of the coastal area

“We are looking for willing volunteers with an interest in the outdoors, archaeology or local history to join our team for a season of fieldwork both above and below the waterline,” said James Brown, the Authority’s Maritime Archaeology Education and Outreach Officer.

The coastline under investigation includes the Milford-on-Sea area where the Bournemouth Coast Path joins the Solent Way.  The volunteers will have the opportunity to work alongside professional archaeologists to carry out site surveys, excavations, monitoring and recording.

The project also needs qualified diving volunteers.

James Brown can be contacted direct on 01590 646695 or email [email protected].
