We give people the chance to work alongside professional archaeologists providing a hands-on learning opportunity. Volunteers get to have a go and learn all types of Archaeological techniques from test-pitting to open area excavation.

Unlike other companies we do not make you stand and watch!

Where funding is raised we offer FREE opportunities for volunteers.
