Antoinette Centre

The Antoinette Centre is a space for teaching, learning and thinking about the past, where studying archaeology and history brings our shared human story to life.

Welcome to the AntCommunity.

The centre has indoor and outdoor activity areas, a well-resourced meeting room and a garden for study and reflection.

A collection of archaeological artefacts has been assembled by experts, and there is a library of archaeology and history books with a local study collection on East Kent and Thanet.

At the Antoinette Centre you can learn how archaeology and history reveal the people of the past and their ways of life, and how studying objects that were made or altered by those people tells the story of their actions, choices and aspirations.

By observing how humans used the resources around them, creating technologies that helped them survive, develop and prosper, we can understand how our own world was shaped.

Experiencing Archaeology and learning about our past is also open to children. Our large teaching area allows children to learn in an engaging, fun and practical way.

The joy of finding something!
