Archaeology Notes

HU67SE 40 c. 69 72

In August 2005, three anchors were revealed and recorded during fieldwork by Wessex Archaeology on the island of Bruray. Although first thought to be associated with the loss of the Kennermerland (HU67SE 8001) this suggestion has been discounted by Chris Dobbs.

MS/2782 (pp. 2-3).
