CITiZAN fieldwork in 2015-18

CITiZAN's three teams of archaeologists have selected several key sites in their region to highlight examples of the wide range of archaeology we encounter on the foreshore: to increase awareness of England's coastal and intertidal heritage and to focus recording on particularly threatened sites.


Key zones by region


South West

South East

The selection of such key sites is based on a range of criteria. A prime consideration is the quality and vulnerability of the features exposed, and for this the Rapid Coastal Zone Assessment Surveys compiled for English Heritage (now Historic England) have been consulted, together with a number of major reports: some of these major titles are listed in the intertidal bibliography.

We have also implemented a series of themed outreach and training months over the summer season to provide a more focussed approach.
