The SeArch – Archaeological heritage in the North Sea – Project aims to develop an efficient assessment methodology and approach towards a sustainable management policy and legal framework in Belgium. The project has two clear goals. The first goal is the development of a reliable survey methodology that allows accurate and cost-effective evaluation of the archaeological potential of marine areas under development (offshore, nearshore, and intertidal). The second goal is to prepare sustainable management policies and the further development and implementation of a legal framework to protect the marine historic environment. Simultaneously, the necessary marine exploitation is kept in mind. For further information:
