No matter whether wooden wrecks, rows of mysterious wooden stakes, metal planes or potential Roman wrecks are your thing, come and practice your archaeological skills on the beach at Sandwich Flats!

On 28-29 September 2019, for the fourth time in two years, we're going back to Sandwich Flats to keep recording the amazing amount of archaeological sites along this beach. MSDS Marine and NAS have teamed up again and this time we're also working with CITiZAN who are running a training event at the same time.

As always, there will be a focus on developing participants' archaeological skills as well as creating up to date records of the sites we discover. Depending on the experience and interest of our fieldwork team, we will offer a range of activities including:

  • Walk-over survey
  • 2D measured tape survey
  • Total station survey of wreck sites
  • Wreck conservation assessments
  • Photogrammetry
  • Site Recorder practice 
  • Use of the CITiZAN app to record coastal features

We will tailor the fieldwork to the interests and abilities of the participants and will be out on the beach for as long as the tide will let us!
