Bouldnor Cliff Field School - 1999

During the Summers of 1998 & 1999, MADU worked in the Solent with the Hampshire & Wight Trust for Maritime Archaeology (now known as the Maritime Archaeology Trust). Amongst other work, MADU helped with recording a submerged forest and uncovering the mystery behind the Bouldnor Cliff Mesolithic site.

During the project weeks, many teams & groups of divers & archaeologists attended and based themselves within the walls of Hurst Castle, which provided an excellent atmospheric base camp.
