The foreshore between the High Water Mark and the Low Water Mark has been shown to retain a rich archaeological heritage that consists of piers, quays and jetties as well as less obvious features such as kelp-grids for seaweed cultivation, fishtraps, training walls, landing places, boatwrecks, and midden heaps. These can range in date from the relatively recent past to early prehistory, and are regarded as an important archaeological resource that informs our understanding of maritime cultural heritage.
ADCO's personnel are very experienced in conducting intertidal survey, bringiing their maritime expertise to bear on identifying the often humble archaeological features that are festooned with seaweed and difficult to see by the untrained eye.
