Anglo-Saxon CSI: Conservation Science Investigation
Thank you for visiting the Anglo-Saxon CSI blog. The blog will be progressing in line with the conservation work of the project. Please feel free to leave comments, or ask our volunteer conservation assistants any questions about the work.
Anglo-Saxon CSI: Sittingbourne is an investigative conservation lab working on finds from an Anglo-Saxon cemetery site from Sittingbourne, Kent. It is a unique community led, public heritage conservation project. It allows public access to the conservation techniques involved in treating objects from an archaeological dig. The project has been a local initiative involving Sittingbourne-based conservator, Dana Goodburn-Brown, combined with the support of local professionals, history enthusiasts and the wider community.
If you want to visit the lab and archaeological exhibition we are located in The Forum shopping precinct in Sittingbourne, Kent. Do make the most of this project whilst you can and if you can help out and show support in any way at all then it would be greatly appreciated. Please have a look at the rest of this site to see what we have found and how we are progressing with the work.
The CSI: lab exhibition has been dedicated to the memory of Jon Norton. Jon was a local resident of Sittingbourne who sadly passed away in 2009. He was a journalist, artist and husband of the late Mo Mowlem.
The lab will only be opening on Friday and Saturday for the forseeable future. This will be the case for November, but hopefully no longer. We’ll let you know when things are back to normal and we apologise for anyone hoping to visit.
