Multi-Beam Surveys of the Designated Wrecks on the Goodwin Sands and the Downs 2017

Author(s): Daniel Pascoe

This report has been prepared by Pascoe Archaeology (PA) for Historic England (HE). It constitutes a Project Report for the multi-beam echo sounder survey (MBES) of six designated sites and one undesignated site in the Goodwin Sands and Downs region. MBES work took place over four days between 13–16 March 2017. The MBES were conducted by MSDS Marine and Swath Services (SS) while PA supervised and oversaw survey operations. Following the fieldwork MSDS Marine and SS processed the results of the data collected. PA used the processed data to interpret the archaeological remains exposed on the seabed for each of the sites that form the basis of this report. In addition, PA has used first-hand knowledge of several of the sites to identify exposed archaeological features visible on the current MBES. Also, comparisons have been made with previous MBES conducted by the Archaeological Diving Unit Survey (ADUS) and TrenDive.
