This two day course will focus on creating records  using our smart phone app and the paper equivalent, to add to CITiZAN's interactive map of coastal and intertidal archaeology. We'll be recording the remains of military buildings in Stonelees Nature Reserve and in doing so build on the survey of the Second World War anti-tank cylinders carried out in 2016 by CITiZAN and volunteers. 

Day 1 will be a classroom session where we will discuss coastal and intertidal archaeology and some of the principle techniques that we can employ to record and monitor sites, particularly those at risk from sea level rise, erosion and other processes associated with climate change.

Day 2 we'll put our boots on and head out for some hands-on fieldwork where can put our skills to good use.  We will start by recording building remains in the nature reserve, This two day course will focus on creating records to add to CITiZAN's interactive map of coastal and intertidal archaeology using our smart phone app and the paper equivalent.

We hope to establish a group of committed volunteers to whom we can offer follow up training sessions, workshops and survey days on different types of sites across East Kent.    

Places are limited to a maximum of 15 and booking is essential via Eventbrite.
