ECOSAL-UK Projects
in the UK

During 2017 we are preparing applications for new research projects into our salt heritage in conjunction with the Centre for Applied Archaeology at Salford University.

1. Multi-discipline research into the  process of sleeching, or sandwashing, where brine is prepared from salt-rich sand.

2. The history of timber-framed building construction in Northwich, Cheshire to withstand ground movement caused by wild brine pumping and subsidence caused by rock salt mining. With specific reference to Brine Board records.

3. 3-d graphics as a way to produce a consistent approach to the interpret all the methods of evaporating brine to make white salt

4. Re-interpretation of archaeological excavations carried out on salt making sites.
