The CITiZAN Appeal
Why we need your help
Thousands of archaeological sites along England’s coast and tidal estuaries are being destroyed by extreme weather, rising sea levels and tidal scour. CITiZAN, the Coastal and Intertidal Zone Archaeological Network, is the first national community-led project to tackle the alarming threat to our heritage.
We are delighted to have received funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, National Trust and The Crown Estate Marine Stewardship Fund and the project is underway. With over 70,000 sites at risk and 5,600 miles of coastline and another 500 miles of tidal estuaries, we would love to broaden the project so that more local communities can get involved in surveying their local heritage.
Any support you can give will enable our network of volunteers to record and celebrate more of our unique coastal heritage before it is lost forever. Please give what you can.
