Explore and record the Wreck of the SS Fernebo with the CITiZAN South East team

The SS Fernebo split in two in January 1917 and 100 years later pieces of the wreckage are still visible at low tide. During this free workshop run by CITiZAN with expert input from the RNLI Henry Blogg Museum, the East Coast War Channels project and the Home Front Legacy project, you will learn more about the First and Second World War shipping lanes and about the SS Fernebo as well as how to record both the SS Fernebo and other coastal archaeology before it is lost completely.

This free two day workshop will run from 10am to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday. On both mornings, at the the RNLI Henry Blogg Museum, there'll be classroom sessions looking at the wreck, it's wider context and documentary research. In the afternoon we'll be recording the wreck.

Everyone who attends will receive a certificate of attendance and a CITiZAN edition Archaeology Skills Passport. As with all CITiZAN training sessions, there is no cost for attending and no previous experience is necessary.

No previous experience is necessary but booking is essential as places are limited.
