A three day training and recording event at the submerged prehistoric forest at Pett Level, East Sussex.

Environmental geoarchaeologist Dr Scott Timpany from the University of the Highlands and Islands Archaeology Institute, carried out a Historic England funded project at this fascinating site in 2014 and will be joining the team again for all three days as more trees are recorded at the site.

The programme of events is now confirmed:

Friday 23rd September: A evening classroom session with mini lectures looking at the site, the recording methods that will be used and the CITiZAN project as a whole. There’ll also be a round up of work from local societies.

Saturday 24th September: (low tide 12.05): A guided walk of the site followed by a recording session

Sunday 25th September: (low tide 13.35): Foreshore recording session

It is possible to just attend the talks and/or the guided walk. Everyone who attends all three sessions will receive a CPD certificate and a CITiZAN edition Archaeology Skills Passport. As with all CITiZAN training sessions, there is no cost for attending.

Timings, the classroom session venue and the foreshore meeting places to be confirmed.
