Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by Fugro EMU Limited to carry out an archaeological assessment of post-construction geophysical data acquired over the Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm and export cable route. Wessex Archaeology was only required to process and interpret sidescan sonar and multibeam bathymetry data covering 182 anomalies listed in the 2009 Written Scheme of Investigation (WA 2009). In addition, a small quantity of multibeam backscatter data was assessed in lieu of sidescan sonar data at the inshore end of the export cable route. The geophysical datasets were assessed over 100m radius target review areas centred on each of the target anomalies from 2009. Features observed within the target review areas were compared to the original geophysical assessment. New features observed within the target review areas were also recorded.
