Each year new archaeological discoveries are made by divers, fishermen, boat operators and coastal visitors in England and Wales. The Marine Antiquities Scheme (MAS) provides a way to record these finds, both protecting and improving our knowledge of the underwater cultural heritage.

Guided by the approach ‘record any discovery before any recovery’, the scheme allows finders to learn more about their discoveries, help characterise the archaeological nature of the marine environment, and allow public access to the data for research.

This great app and resource is now available to download for both Apple and Android!
