The Lancaster University Archaeological Unit (LUAU) was commissioned by British
Nuclear Fuels plc to undertake an archaeological evaluation at Sellafield (NY 03450492)
on the site of a proposed topsoil tip in January 1997.
This was a green field site, with no previous archaeological information available, but was
in the vicinity of significant archaeological remains of prehistoric date, which occur along
the western coastal plain of Cumbria. An evaluation programme was therefore required by
the County Archaeologist to establish if the area of the proposed development had any
archaeological potential. LUAU prepared a project design for this evaluation (Appendix
2), in accordance with a verbal brief from the County Archaeologist.
