ARCHAEOLOGY FOR ALL
Inclusivity, diversity and the importance of community relevance are key objectives, alongside a research-based approach, which underpin our projects aims. This philosophy extends to all generations, interest levels and abilities, including people with disabilities, whether sensory, mobility or mental-health related. Archaeology can be enjoyed by everybody, both in the field as well as indoors, practical or creative.

LEARN NEW SKILLS
Volunteers will have the chance to learn about archaeological fieldwork techniques, recording and finds analysis under expert guidance – no previous experience is needed. We will train you. Fieldwork opportunities include excavation of test pits as well as seasonal field-walking. Indoor activities include finds processing, analysis and documentation.

For students, early career archaeologists and regular excavation volunteers, the Archaeology Skills Passport is a great (and inexpensive) way to record your learning and experiences. The comprehensive Passport is increasingly used by universities, commercial employers and community ventures.
