Rapid Coastal Zone Assessment for Isles of Scilly

Author(s): Charles Johns, Richard Larn, Bryn Perry Tapper

This report describes the results of a rapid coastal zone assessment (RCZA) of the Isles of Scilly carried out in 2003 and early 2004 by the Historic Environment Service, Cornwall County Council for English Heritage. The Isles of Scilly RCZA is an innovative project, being the first such assessment to be commissioned since the National Heritage Act (2002) enabled English Heritage to assume responsibility for all monuments on, in, or under the seabed within UK territorial waters around the coast of England. The aim of the project is to improve our knowledge and understanding of the submerged heritage by extending existing terrestrial, shoreline and intertidal assessments of the islands out to the 12 nautical mile limit in order to achieve integrated management of the whole of the historic environment in Scilly.
