dc.description.abstractThe archaeology of coastal regions is rich and varied, but is facing increasing pressures from natural processes. Regardless of how the climate may change in the future, many coastal archaeological sites are threatened by erosion now. In order to manage this resource, it is essential to identify both sites and vulnerable stretches of coast. This paper introduces the Scottish situation and discusses recent approaches taken in Scotland, where a methodology has been developed that is applicable to all coastal areas. The first stage of the approach has been to undertake desk-based and field surveys in order to identify what is at risk and to gauge its vulnerability. The next stage has been to produce and review recommended actions for vulnerable sites. Finally, a shortlist of sites has been produced that prioritises actions according to the importance and level of threat posed to individual sites. Looking ahead, a new project will seek to further refine this shortlist by harnessing public opinion and local knowledge in order to ensure that action is taken at sites valued both by archaeologists and the wider public.
