Editorial Reviews for this title:
This report presents the findings of CADW funded surveys carried out between 1993 and 1998 on the Welsh coastal zone and discusses the broader implications of the project. The contributors define what is meant by coastal archaeology and outline the methodology of the surveys, before presenting a chronological overview of their results, of the location, type and importance of sites threatened by natural erosion, the construction of sea defences and of harbour and port facilities for example. Moreover, this report looks at priorities for the future and stresses the urgent need for archaeological representation on national forums and committees and in any decision-making that threatens the heritage of the Welsh coastline.
