CITiZAN, the Coastal and Intertidal Zone Archaeological Network, is an award-winning community-led MOLA project. We tackle threats to England’s fragile coastal archaeology, with funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, and support from Lloyds Register Foundation, Historic England and the National Trust.


Walkers can enjoy this series of Low Tide Trails to explore the wealth of archaeological features exposed on our shores.
