Description

Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by Centrica Energy Renewable Investments Ltd. (CERI) now Celtic Array, to undertake the archaeological assessment of the Round 3 Irish Sea Zone, This archaeological review of geophysical data represents Phase II of a four phase Zonal Appraisal and Planning (ZAP) process for the Irish Sea Zone, it is the archaeological review of geophysical data obtained by CERI/ Celtic Array , with the survey carried out by Marin Mätteknik AB (MMT) between February and August 2010. The data consisted of sidescan sonar, sub-bottom profiler (sparker), multibeam bathymetry and marine magnetometer data. This review included an assessment of these results in conjunction with historical data and a previous desk-based assessment for the Irish Sea Zone, which forms Phase II of the Zonal Appraisal and Planning process. The assessment focused on the potential for remnant land surfaces that may contain archaeological material relating to times of lower sea level, and the potential for the remains of maritime craft or aircraft of cultural heritage importance within the area that may be impacted upon by development within the Irish Sea Zone.
