Investigations in 2008

Investigations in 2008

As well as processing of the assemblage recovered in 2007, 2008 saw on-going fieldwork at Bouldnor Cliff. Divers located a further 31 worked flints, mainly from newly eroded areas at BCII. A series of auger samples were collected from BCV where more timbers associated with the possible log boat were found. Another loci of archaeological finds was discovered eroding from the cliff 100m to the east of BCV.

The work on the site in 2008 continued primarily with the support of the Leverhulme Trust and the Royal Archaeological Institute who provided grants to push forward investigations on this unique resource. It is an area that has a lot more to offer within the pristine land surface buried below the silts. Unfortunately it is a race against time as the ongoing loss of the submerged prehistoric landscape means the loss of an unparalleled component of our prehistoric heritage.
