About this book

Documenting the story of how a nationally important archaeological site was excavated from an eroding cliffedge next to the Low Hauxley Reserve, Northumberland , UK, in the summer of 2014. With sea level rise accelerating, archaeologists are in a race against time to record ancient remains eroding from our shores before they are destroyed by the sea. This accessible book documents a remarkable story of how a prehistoric site perched on a cliff edge was discovered and excavated by professional archaeologists with the help of the local community. The results of this excavation have made an important contribution to our national story, as well as for Northumberland, and with an abundance of illustrations Rescued from the Sea provides a highly visual record of this exciting work. This is a story of discovery, persistence and passion in which many hundreds of people took part. Relive this remarkable excavation through the pages of Rescued from the Sea and let the story unfold just as it did for the excavators.

All proceeds from the sale of Rescued from the Sea are going towards further recording and monitoring of eroding archaeological remains on the Northumberland coast.
