Holy Trinity Church, Trinity Green, Gosport, Hampshire, PO12 1HL
This talk will explain the important archaeology exposed along our Gosport coastline at low tide, and how you might help to recognise and record it…
Britain at Low Tide – The coast of England is under constant threat from wind, waves and winter storms. These threats wreak havoc on England’s varied coastal and intertidal heritage, not only exposing these sites but washing them away before they are ever seen. The Coastal and Intertidal Zone Archaeological Network (CITiZAN) has been set up in response to these dynamic threats to our island heritage.
As an award-winning community archaeology project, CITiZAN need to survey 6,500 miles of English Coastline which is exposed at low tide but covered at high tide….including Gosport’s shore!
So, come along to this talk and learn about the project; what CITiZAN are finding around Gosport at low tide; and why they are actively promoting site recording and long-term monitoring programmes led by community volunteers. They’ll explain how you can be a part of their project, become a CITiZAN Archaeology Surveyor and have fun doing it!
This talk is held within Holy Trinity Church, a stone’s throw from one of six embarkation points in Gosport for D-Day Allied troops.
