Identifying and mapping sites of national importance within the East Sussex wetlands

National Importance Programme Pilot Project Report

By Oxford Archaeology South

The pilot project discusses techniques, methodologies and recent developments for investigating and predicting nationally important  wetland sites. The pilot outlines one approach to predictive modelling leading to the development of a more detailed alert mapping, the local authority-designated Archaeological Notification Areas, that could be used for managing sites of national importance within wetland areas.

A series of case studies incorporating analysis of historic approaches to coastal and wetland landscapes in East Sussex, and a review of the highest priority exemplar assets of the Combe Haven, Pevensey and Willingdon Levels are provided.
