The areas that will be surveyed here include the bronze-age remains jutting out of the cliff at Halangy on St Mary’s and the Old Quay on St Martin’s, where 5,000 year old Neolithic pottery has been uncovered.
There’ll also be work around the corner at Par Beach.
A cow’s tooth, thought to originate in 4000BC was recently found there. Radiocarbon dating is expected to confirm it as one of the oldest examples of domestic animal rearing in the British Isles.
