Description

The Orkney Research Centre for Archaeology (ORCA) was commissioned by
Xodus Group to provide a baseline assessment of the marine historic environment
assets that may be affected by a proposed marine renewable energy development,
which forms part of a wave farm at Brough Head, off the north-west coast of
Mainland Orkney. The area to be assessed is around Outshore Point, between
Point of Howana Geo, Northdyke, and Sand Geo, Marwick. Scientific Underwater
Logistics And Diving (SULA Diving) were requested by ORCA to carry out a Desk
Based Assessment (DBA) of the possible submerged cultural heritage along the
offshore cable route. This assessment will identify any sites of cultural heritage
significance that might be affected by the proposed development and make some
initial suggestions for managing any identified issues and impacts concerning the
cultural heritage resource.
