Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA) is offering Londoners a free app so they can help it locate vulnerable archaeology along the Thames.
MOLA says: “With nothing more than the phone in your pocket, you can explore and record at-risk archaeology
along the Thames estuary on the go, dating from pre-historic times to the present!
Smart phones and tablets are powerful archaeological recording tools: with a camera and a GPS they are
perfect for locating and recording new archaeological features.”
CITiZAN’s archaeology survey app is free to download and is available for Android and Apple devices.
Adopt a part of the Thames estuary and champion your local heritage! The app can be carried wherever you go and is ideal for long-term monitoring of archaeological features at risk on the foreshore.

MOLA adds: We hope you enjoyed Channel 4’s recent mini-series Britain at Low Tide featuring CITiZAN archaeologists and volunteers. MOLA was thrilled at the chance to share the amazing archaeology it monitors along the coast and inter-tidal zone with such a wide audience.
MOLA’s registered online CITiZAN surveyors can record archaeology at low tide using our free smartphone app CITiZAN Coastal Archaeology Survey, available for Android and Apple devices.You will need to register – a simple three-step process!
The CITiZAN app is designed to work offline, as mobile coverage can be patchy in places along our coastlines. Read More
