Title Hulk Assemblages: Assessing the National Context
Summary The Hulk Assemblages Project, in two parts, was undertaken by Museum of London Archaeology, with input from the Thames Discovery Programme and the Nautical Archaeology Society. The aim of the project was to create a method for quantifying known hulk assemblages in England, and to create a nationwide database of hulk assemblages, that could be used to identify thematic, geographic and temporal gaps in the known data. A comprehensive survey of hulks or hulk assemblages in England has not previously been conducted. This project brings together data from multiple sources, including Historic Environment Records, the National Record of the Historic Environment, Rapid Coastal Zone Assessments, the National Historic Ships Register, and that held by specialist societies and research groups. The first part was completed in 2011. Part Two of the project was completed in 2013. The primary aim of the Hulks Part Two project was to fill some of the geographical data gaps that were identified in the Hulk Assemblages Project Part One, and thus complete the audit of known hulk assemblages in England. This second part of the project was funded by English Heritage as part of the National Heritage Protection Plan work on coastal heritage.
