CITiZAN – MoLA’s new nationwide coastal erosion project

Museum of London Archaeology, in partnership with the Council for British Archaeology, the National Trust, the Crown Estate, and the Nautical Archaeology Society, has recently been successful in achieving a Heritage Lottery Fund grant to support its new CITiZAN project. CITiZAN, or Coastal and Intertidal Zone Archaeological Network, is a nationwide survey and monitoring system of exposed, but significant archaeological sites under threat from coastal erosion.

The funding, which has been matched by the Crown Estate Marine Stewardship Fund and the National Trust, will enable MoLA’s community archaeologists to deliver the three-year community programme and they will be recruiting volunteers from spring 2015.
