Tom Daley's Olympic partner Peter Waterfield is set to resume his decade-long career after a decision to cut his funding was overturned.
Aldershot and Gillingham drew one all during their derby match this afternoon.
Peter Murphy, English Heritage’s coastal survey expert, says: “The loss of most of the medieval town of Dunwich over the last few hundred years – one of the most important English ports in the Middle Ages – is part of a long process that is likely to result in more losses in the future."
“Whilst we cannot stop the forces of nature, we can ensure what is significant is recorded and our knowledge and memory of a place doesn’t get lost forever. Professor Sear and his team have developed techniques that will be valuable to understanding submerged and eroded sites elsewhere.”
A University of Southampton professor has carried out the most detailed analysis ever of the archaeological remains of the lost medieval town of Dunwich, dubbed ‘Britain’s Atlantis’.
Funded and supported by English Heritage, and using advanced underwater imaging techniques, the project led by Professor David Sear of Geography and Environment has produced the most accurate map to date of the town’s streets, boundaries and major buildings, and revealed new ruins on the seabed.
Professor Sear said: “Visibility under the water at Dunwich is very poor due to the muddy water. We have now dived on the site using high resolution DIDSON ™ acoustic imaging to examine the ruins on the seabed – a first use of this technology for non-wreck marine archaeology."
“DIDSON technology is rather like shining a torch onto the seabed, only using sound instead of light. The data produced helps us to not only see the ruins, but also understand more about how they interact with the tidal currents and sea bed.”

The pressure was on Bale to deliver after a brilliant week for the Welshman, but for most of the game he disappointed.
The 23-year-old, former Southampton FC player, won the PFA Player of the Year, Young Player of the Year, and FWA Footballer of the Year awards this week, was marked out of the game for most of what was largely a dull and uninspiring match.
Bale flitted between positions, his touch was often poor, and he offered little to help Spurs on the attack.
That was until the 86th minute. The forward found space 25 yards out, picked the ball off substitute Lewis Holtby and unleashed a peach of a shot which beat the out-stretched Artur Boruc.

“It is not acceptable for restaurants to be infested with mice and the Council’s environmental health officers will take robust action to protect customers where a food business operator fails to satisfy such basic hygiene requirements.”

Mouse droppings were found throughout the kitchen and were present on surfaces used to prepare food. The restaurant was immediately closed due to the health risk presented to customers.
