The NAS NE was formally established in 2004, based within the office space of Tees Archaeology, in Hartlepool on the North-East coast of England.

The original team of three, Gary Green, Dave Coston and Sarah Scarlet, was joined by Assistant Tutor Diane Marlborough and a ‘regular’ core of volunteers.

Between 2004 and 2012, NAS NE has played a leading role in six major projects, ‘For the Record’, ‘Dig, Dive and Discover’, ‘North-East of England Maritime Archaeology Research Archive’ and ‘Hartlepool-built: Ships, Crews and Community’, ‘Hartlepool History Then and Now’ securing grant funding of over £100,000.

NAS East Anglia
All NAS members, not just those in East Anglia, are welcome to participate in intertidal survey weekends with the NAS East Anglia region. Generally concentrating on three separate wrecks, the Vicuna, a barquentine stranded in 1883, the Vina, a steam coaster with intact boilers wrecked in 1944, and an unidentified wreck, probably a local 19th Century sailing vessel, discovered in 2010 by the NAS East Anglia group.

No diving is required as the survey work is timed to take place at low water when these vessels are exposed. These weekends offers participants a great chance to build up their field work experience.

Aiming to extend the previous survey work undertaken by the NAS in Norfolk which, in the case of the Steam Trawler Sheraton, has resulted in five Part II projects. It also offers excellent opportunities to undertake record collecting for Part II survey projects.
