The third issue of the Fishing Industry Protocol for Archaeological Discoveries Newsletter is now available to download. It contains details of the changes to the project with the end of the generous support given by the Heritage Lottery Fund; news of the latest finds, and the upcoming Littlehampton Museum presentation and display. In addition it has the details on the Marine Antiquities Scheme app and how finds can still be reported and shared with the wider community.
On Thursday 08 February as part of the Heritage Lottery Funded exhibition ‘Nets, Wrecks & Artefacts at Littlehampton Museum, Alistair Byford-Bates from Wessex Archaeology will be giving an enlightening talk about the unique objects found under water. Entitled ‘Nets, Wrecks, and Artefacts‘, attendees can find out more about the Fishing Industry Protocol for Archaeological Discoveries and how the scheme is helping Sussex fishermen record some fascinating finds from off the Sussex coast.
