Exploring Forton Lake Vessels with CITiZAN
WELLIES ESSENTIALThe Forton Lake Project was a collaboration between the Nautical Archaeology Society and the Hampshire & Wight Trust for Maritime Archaeology which highlighted the importance of maritime archaeology to the whole community by encouraging hands-on involvement. Over 3 summers investigations and excavations were carried out on 20 or so ships, as the team uncovered and recorded them and researched their histories. Join Lauren from the CITiZAN* team to explore the mudflats and learn more about the wrecks.
Tour lasts approximately 60 minutes.
*CITiZAN (Coastal and Intertidal Zone Archaeological Network) is a community archaeology project that trains volunteers across England to record and monitor fragile sites along our coast and foreshores of our tidal estuaries which are being eroded by winds, waves and winter storms.
Event not suitable for children under the age of 10.
