Get involved Projects Our Projects Big Anchor Project The Big Anchor Project is a fun heritage recording initiative which aims to empower public volunteers in the recording of physical anchors around the world. You can download recording forms and the accompanying guidance notes, to record the heritage within your community. The Big Anchor Project aims to develop a global tool for the identification of anchors. The initiative is managed by the NAS with the help of various project partners and supporters. The project is building a freely accessible, online database of anchors which can serve as a valuable tool for anybody undertaking research or with a general interest in the subject.
