Description

Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by Centrica Renewable Energy Limited to undertake an archaeological desk-based assessment of the potential impact upon archaeological remains from the proposed Lincs Offshore Wind Farm.  Searches for known archaeological material were conducted within a broad Data Search Area.  Information was sought from a wide range of local and national bodies, including the Sites and Monuments Record, maintained by Lincolnshire County Council, the National Monuments Record and by the UK Hydrographic Office. This data was then filtered in order to focus only on those sites that lie within the footprint of this scheme (i.e. within an area termed the Lincs Archaeological Study Area); remaining data was used as part of an assessment of archaeological potential.  In summary, the archaeological potential of Lincs wind farm comprises:
• Five known wrecks and obstructions within the Lincs Archaeological Study Area (of
which one is a charted sewerage out-fall);
• 76 documented losses some of which may lie within the wind farm or cable route
corridors;
• Unknown and undocumented wrecks from various periods dating back to at least the
Iron Age;
• Stray finds of ship-borne debris from various periods
• The potential for the presence of submerged prehistoric land-surfaces, possibly
containing archaeological data and site.  This series contains the Archaeological Assessment Technical Report, and associated GIS datasets, including magnetometer and side scan sonar anomalies, wreck, obstruction and aircraft locations, trawl scar areas and areas of disturbed seabed.
