Marine Antiquities Scheme guides


The Unexploded Ordnance Guide for the Marine Antiquities Scheme (MAS) was produced in collaboration with 6 Alpha Associates Limited, an independent risk management consultancy practice. This guide provides advice to MAS users regarding the hazards associated with unexploded ordnance and the actions to take on finding a UXO.

Ordnance and munitions provide important evidence of our past and help us understand historical naval and aerial warfare and may be indicators of shipwrecks or aircraft wrecks. Details on the archaeological value of ordnance and its role within this scheme are presented in the MAS Guide: Ordnance & Munitions
