Our Changing Coast
A survey of the intertidal archaeology of Langstone Harbour, Hampshire
by Michael J Allen and Julie Gardiner
This innovative multi-disciplinary study presents the story of the development of a complex archaeological landscape, from the hunting ground of Mesolithic inhabitants, through funerary and ritual use as the tidal inlet developed during the Bronze Age, to its current status as an internationally important wildlife reserve.
Utilising a wide range of survey, excavation, and sampling techniques and strategies both on land and underwater the survey broke new ground in the integrated study of terrestrial, intertidal and marine environments. The authors have provided an important contribution to the archaeology of the area and a methodological benchmark for the study of intertidal landscapes.
