Video-call a Prehistoric Archaeologist: Free sessions for Home-Schooling 

CITiZAN (Coastal and Intertidal Zone Archaeological Network), an award-winning citizen science project combatting the threat of erosion to coastal and intertidal archaeology, is offering free, 1-hour video call workshops across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. Sessions will be hosted by Dr Sam Griffiths, Lead Archaeologist on CITiZAN’s Humber-based Discovery Programme. Find out more about Sam HERE.

Each session is up-to 1-hour, with interactive presentations and activites via screen-share and time for Q&As. Follow up indoor and outdoor activities can also be shared. Sessions can be run flexibly, weekdays 9am – 3pm, depending on demand. Just send Sam an email for a chat and more details.

Sessions can be adapted according to needs of individuals and groups, and home-schoolers can speak to Sam in advance of the sessions to chat through possible topic ideas. Possible topics include:

  • Coastal and Intertidal Geography and Archaeology
  • Sea-level rise and landscapes
  • Prehistoric Archaeology
  • Geology

All can include future plans for onsite tours/walks to get hands-on with archaeology and nature (when/where possible).

If you’d be interested in signing up, or want more information, then let Sam know by emailing


We look forward to hearing from you,
Dr Sam Griffiths
