In the 1970s, Folkestone Harbour was the focus of a secretive research project that led to a controversial discovery. Now an international team, led by French physicist Mireille Hachette, is attempting to replicate the forty-year-old project.

Visit the seafront research laboratory crammed with rusting electronic equipment recovered from the original project, and view the Centipede, the mysterious apparition that the instruments intermittently detect in the sky above Folkestone. You may even come across one of the elusive researchers at work.

You can find science writer Nigel Ember’s account of the project here:

Sponsored by the International Cryptoarchaeology Research Foundation, the INTERREG initiative of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the University of Lens.
