Video-call a Prehistoric Archaeologist: Free sessions for KS1 – 4 Groups 

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 for Yorkshire and Lincolnshire school groups (KS1-4). 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 via screen-share and time for Q&As. Follow up activities, like build a cannon or make a fish-trap, for fun and further learning can also be passed on. Sessions can be run flexibly, weekdays 9am – 3pm, depending on demand. You’ll get a poll to choose best times for you when you sign-up.

Sessions can be adapted according to needs of individuals and school groups, and teachers can speak to Sam in advance of the session to chat through possible topic ideas, and to agree on a suitable video platform. Possible topics to tie in with the national curriculum include:

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

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


Look forward to hearing from you,
Dr Sam Griffiths
