Description

Wessex Archaeology (WA) was commissioned by Scira Limited to prepare an
archaeological Written Scheme of Investigation (WSI) for the construction phase of
the Sherringham Shoal offshore wind farm.

The WSI is based on the information contained within the document within the
Addendum to the ‘Environmental Statement’ (ES), herein after referred to as the
Addendum.

The Addendum was undertaken in March 2009 to update the ES, carried out in April
2006, with the results of geophysical and geotechnical surveys post submission and
approval of the ES. The surveys were commissioned by Statoil to inform the design
and construction process.

The Written Scheme of Investigation (WSI) addresses the offshore part of the
Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm Development. For the onshore part of the
work a separate WSI has been prepared and approved and therefore forms no part
of this document.

The objectives of the WSI are as follows:
• To fulfil the requirements of English Heritage in respect of archaeological
monitoring and mitigation of works associated with this project;
• To establish the exact position and extent of any Archaeological Exclusion
Zones;
• To ensure that any further geophysical and geotechnical investigations
associated with the project are subject to archaeological input, review,
recording and sampling;
• To establish the reporting and archiving requirements for the archaeological
works undertaken during construction and post-construction monitoring.
• To fulfil the requirements set out under the FEPA licence.
