Illuminating the past – Enhancing the present – Inspiring the future

CSI Sittingbourne

CSI Sittingbourne was set up in 2010 in redundant shop space provided by Tesco at the Forum Shopping Mall in the heart of Sittingbourne. The project aims to give members of the community a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn the basic skills of archaeological conservation from a team of experts. So far more than 20,000 visitors have passed through our doors and hundreds of volunteers have helped to uncover the secrets of the past through careful conservation of thousands of ancient artefacts unearthed during excavations of an Anglo-Saxon burial site excavated at The Meads near Sittingbourne.

The wonderful work of CSI Sittingbourne was recognized when it received an international conservation award – an accolade shared jointly with the Acropolis Museum in Athens – made by the International Institute of Conservation. More about the award and the presentation can be seen here.
