Description

Centrica Energy Renewable Investments Limited (CERI) now Celtic Array commissioned Wessex Archaeology to undertake to undertake geoarchaeological recording of borehole samples. The borehole samples come from 43 boreholes taken as part of a geotechnical survey of the proposed Rhiannon offshore wind farm. Of the 43 boreholes acquired and assessed in Stage 1 (Wessex Archaeology , Celtic Array Ref SE-D-CE-073-0000-000000-011), 13 were recommended to be taken on to Stage 2 recording and sampling, all of which have been outlined in this report. A total of 167 samples from Boreholes 02a, 03, 08a, 23, 24, 30, 32a, 33, 34 (and 34b_G), 35, 36 (and 36a_G), 37 and 42, were geoarchaeologically recorded during June and July 2013 at Wessex Archaeology. The results of the Stage 2 geoarchaeological recording have been integrated with the geophysical interpretation of the area with the following sedimentary And a Stage 3 palaeoenvironmental assessment and scientific dating of Units 2, 5a, 5b, 6, 7 and 8 is warranted in order to better understand the chronology, depositional environments and archaeological potential of the sediments.
