Experts in the Neanderthal period have welcomed steps taken to protect the internationally important archaeological site of La Cotte de St. Brelade. A project co-ordinated by Jersey Heritage has begun work to protect the site, which would allow archaeologists to stabilise and investigate the intact deposits. Whilst this work will inform the future management of this key site, there is also the possibility that significant finds could be made.

As work begins on stabilising the rock face and constructing a gabion wall across the seaward entrance to the cave, Jersey Heritage is using state-of-the-art technology to create ‘virtual’ access to the site. The project is part of Jersey Heritage’s strategy to improve access to sites and working towards a broader use of digital technology.

Jersey’s Ice Age Island project has been nominated for a prestigious industry award, and it will need the support of Islanders to win. The project has been nominated in the ‘Research Project of the Year’ category in the Archaeology Awards 2018, organised by Current Archaeology.

In Spring 2017 Jersey Archive staff completed the transfer of over 1.5 million images from the offices of the Jersey Evening Post to the strongrooms of the archive building.
