In the summer of 2013 Northumberland Wildlife Trust and Archaeological
Research Services Ltd. led a small army of local volunteers on an excavation at
Low Hauxley, at the north end of Druridge Bay on the Northumberland Coast.
The Heritage Lottery funded ‘Rescued from the Sea’ project was a race against
time to meticulously uncover, record and preserve the extremely rare and
nationally important archaeological finds that were hidden within the cliff face
before they were washed into the sea. The book documents the story of the
project; from the local volunteer archaeologist who first noticed remains in the
exposed cliff face, through the 13 week dig and the analysis of the many finds.
