More than 500,000 years of the history of Chichester harbour is now available online. Chichester Harbour Conservancy has posted the results of more than four years of archaeological research on its website, www.conservancy.co.uk

It reveals that boats have used the harbour for several thousand years, with evidence of human activity around the harbour reflecting domestic, industrial and commercial life. The Archaeology Research Framework and Uncovering the Past provide a compilation, in report format, of all the current archaeological knowledge for the Chichester Harbour area.

Four sections give detailed information on archaeological projects undertaken between 2003-2007 as part of the Heritage Lottery Funded ‘Rhythms of the Tide’ project.
