Watching briefs, where an archaeologist oversees all or a portion of a development, can form a vital part of the development process where there is a high potential of archaeological material being impacted by any works. Where specified in any guidance or licence conditions MSDS Marine can prepare appropriate Written Schemes of Investigation (WSI) and supply suitably qualified and experienced archaeologists to undertake the watching brief. We have experience ranging from small terrestrial extensions in National Parks through to channel deepening works alongside designated historic wrecks.
