Canterbury Archaeological Trust 92a Broad Street

The Archaeology in Education Service (AES) was set up in the late 1980's to support, as a priority, the implementation of the new National Curriculum in Kent's schools. The AES is run by a part-time Education Officer who plans and participates in and/or manages all aspects of the service, engaging other CAT staff as appropriate. The focus of attention is still with Kent schools and in particular those in the Canterbury District. Our aims are to promote Archaeology in general and Archaeology of the local area for the benefit of Kent schools in particular, and Canterbury District schools as a priority, and to work with other educational agencies as and when appropriate. One of the most economic ways to try and reach large numbers is to provide teachers with knowledge and the capability to use this with their pupils. In attempting to achieve this, priority is given to the production of resource materials and liaison with teacher training establishments and working teachers.
