Maritime and Naval
Scheduling Selection Guide
This selection guide offers an overview of the sorts of archaeological monument or site with maritime or naval associations which are likely to be deemed to have national importance, and for which of those scheduling may be appropriate. It aims to do two things: to set these within their historical context, and to give an introduction to the designation approaches employed.
Given the extent of the coastal zone, there is a maritime component to many other archaeological selection guides with, for instance, coastal defences of all periods covered under the two military scheduling selection guides (Pre-1500 Military Sites and Military Sites Post-1500), and ship canals under that for Transport. In addition, reference should also be made to the Maritime and Naval Buildings and the Military Structures listing selection guides which cover post-medieval structures in more detail than this document.
