Synthesis, dissemination and outreach

As part of this stage a number of school visits, event days and web based dissemination tasks were undertaken. In June 2009 school workshops were delivered to Year 5 and 6 pupils in four different schools in Great Yarmouth and Pakefield and community group talks were presented. 
 
The Royal Norfolk Show was attended on the 1st and 2nd July 2009. Over 1,000 people of all ages visited the stand to learn about submerged prehistory and the Area 240 project. The Lowestoft Airshow was also attended on the 23rd and 24th July where display panels detailing the project were displayed alongside examples of finds from the area. 
 
Display panels detailing the project were displayed at the Time and Tide museum in Great Yarmouth, during October 2009. The museum has strong links with local schools and organisations and is very well known in the Norfolk region. It features a prehistoric gallery that introduces some of the themes explored by the Area 240 project. 
 
Additionally, both the project methodology and results have been presented to a wider audience through a series of conference and seminar papers and posters. The audience have included industry and regulators as well as the research community.
