What is the FROG?
FROG stands for the Foreshore Recording & Observation Group. The FROG is made up of volunteers who have been trained bythe Thames Discovery Programme staff. The training covers archaeological recording techniques and, most importantly, health &safety on the foreshore. The FROG is London-wide, open to everyone and you don
#
t need any previous experience of archaeologyto join in. The group is made up of people from all walks of life that share a passion for the river and its archaeology, and is notaffiliated to any other archaeological organisation, particular area or specific period of history.
What does the FROG do?
The FROG helps the TDP to monitor each of the 20 archaeological sites that the project is recording on the Thames foreshore. Thismonitoring work will carry on during the lifetime of the Thames Discovery Programme and beyond. The FROG work with the TDPstaff during the Summer Season of fieldwork, organise trips and events on the foreshore, and have access to exclusive FROGworkshops and activities.
Health and Safety
We have very strict Health and Safety requirements, and all FROG group members are covered by Thames Discovery Programmeinsurance and foreshore permits during their FROG visits – this will not be the case if you “go it alone”.
When are the next training dates?
We don
#
t have any training dates confirmed at present. However, if you would like to register your interest in future FROG trainingevents during 2010 – 2011, please emailenquiries@thamesdiscovery.orgor call 0207 679 0540, to request an application form.
How else can I get involved if I am not yet a FROG member?
We hold a number of foreshore walks, archaeology discovery days, object handling sessions and seminars with guest speakersthroughout the year, alongside activities at other museums and venues in Greater London. Other organisations in the London areaalso have Thames-related events, and we try and advertise as many of these on our website as we can. The Creekside Centre andthe Thames Explorer Trust organise a regular programme of river walks with an archaeological theme. You can find out what
