Subtidal Archaeology

Principal investigator: Phoebe Ronn
Level: Undergraduate

I am a second year at the University of York and I am writing my undergraduate dissertation on potential subtidal archaeology. I will be creating a series of maps of the UK in GIS using geological data, marine topography data and archaeological data from CITiZAN and (hopefully) the Portable Antiquities Scheme. I will be using these maps to look for patterns that suggest that there is archaeology to be found below the tide level, just off the coast. I would like to use the accurate PAS raw point data, detailing the location of finds around the coast of the UK. This is cruical for my conclusions. For example; if I can see in my maps that there is an area that has a lot of coastal roman finds, but no terrestrial roman archaeology present then it could be that there is roman archaeology below the sea. When assessed alongside geological/topographical maps of the UK, I believe I will be able to identify potential subtidal areas of archaeological interest. I would like access to the point data for approximately 10 months, as I will be handing in my dissertation in April 2019.
