Our training programme takes place over two days and includes health and safety training, an introduction to the archaeology on the Thames foreshore, a foreshore fieldwork session on an iconic London beach and a guided walk to explore the archaeology of the Roman and Medieval Port of London. After the two-day course, you’ll have a better understanding of how to do archaeological recording on the Thames foreshore, and will be able to take part in our fieldwork season during the spring and summer of 2019.

Foreshore Taster Day, City of London

24th February 2019, 11am

This year, we’ve organised a Foreshore Taster Day for people interested in becoming a FROG member. We’ll take you on a guided walk of the City foreshore and show you some of the features we’ve worked on. It’s your chance to find out more about getting involved. We strongly recommend you join us on the Taster Day if you haven’t visited the Thames foreshore before, or taken part in archaeological fieldwork, but everyone is welcome!
