Saturday 4th July and Sunday 5th July


Under the instruction of two expert archaeologists and surveyors, join other NAS members to learn about how an intertidal site would have been surveyed in the past using a plane table and then see how this compares to the more modern technique of total station survey. 

Participants will get hands on practice of these two pieces of survey equipment and will be working on the wreck of the Helping Hand. Skills learnt at this course will be useful for surveying intertidal sites in the future!

This two day residential course will develop your survey skills and your ability to work on intertidal sites. 


Anyone interested in terrestrial or intertidal survey methods, especially those who want to learn how to use the survey equipment for themselves.

NAS members will earn 10 credits towards their Certificate or Award.

All participants will stay at the self-catering Lawrenny Millennium Hostel for approximately £25/night (to be paid separately).
