Hampshire Water Festival 2009

Marine Archaeologist Niall Callan Talks to Members of the PublicTime Travelling by Water appeared at the Hampshire Water Festival for the second year running on the 25th and 26th July. The Festival celebrates all aspects of the water around us – from boats on the river, to the animals and insects in it, to the archaeology below it and much more besides. Hundreds of people visited the Time Travelling by Water stand during the Festival to meet our hard-working archaeologists and learn about the range and variety of artefacts that can be found in our seas and rivers. Marine archaeology is often inaccessible so we are pleased that events like this one allow everyone to handle their heritage and explore our past.

Seabed Prehistory in Norfolk

The sea above Area 240Time Travelling by Water will be in Norfolk for the next two weeks to support Wessex Archaeology’s Area 240 project. Our Area 240 team are exploring an area of seabed 13km east of Great Yarmouth, where flint tools and animal remains from thousands of years ago were found last year. Time Travelling by Water will be talking to schools, community groups and appearing at event days such as the Royal Norfolk Show. Hope to see you there!
