Once a UW archaeological site has been identified, surveys using remote sensing, recording, mapping, photogrammetry, sediment coring & shovel sampling, photo & video documentation and an AIA (archaeological impact assessment) must be produced for a maritime heritage assessment.

UW Excavation & Conservation

Archaeological excavation is careful fieldwork with defined research objectives which examines, records and interprets archaeological deposits & features, and where appropriate, retrieves artifacts. This process requires special tools & techniques such as water dredges, airlifts, and must be done meticulously to preserve the site. Artifacts recovered must be lifted, preserved, & conserved with analysis, reports & presentation to the scientific & public community.

UW Archaeological Site Management

Site management of a UW archaeological site is a lengthy process including project design, license applications, site surveys, assessments of passive conservation needs, procurement of shore-side facilities, & public engagement, followed by excavation work that includes research, artifact assessment, analysis, conservation & reporting. Poni offers a comprehensive service to ensure that all work is undertaken to the highest archaeological standards.

 

UW Site & Shipwreck Preservation

Shipwrecks & UW historical sites are a treasure trove of cultural heritage. Marine developments such as pipelines & bridges can can have adverse impacts on these sites. SASMAP (Development of Tools & Techniques to Survey, Assess, Stabilize, Monitor & Preserve Underwater Archaeological Sites) and considerations for in situ preservation must be considered. The degradation of artificial reef structures & shipwrecks can be slowed by anode installations, mooring blocks, and awareness of preservation techniques to users.
