Description

Turn the Tide, CITiZAN’s second annual conference will highlight communities and coastal archaeology from around the southwest and across the English Channel. Join us in buzzing Bristol for a voyage of discovery on the world famous SS Great Britain on Saturday 8th October 2016!

Our one day conference will include talks from a variety of speakers including active CITiZAN volunteers and preeminent coastal and intertidal archaeology scholars. In addition to the lectures, there will be display stalls for local groups, lunch and refreshments included and an opportunity to explore Brunel’s superbly restored SS Great Britain at no extra cost!
