Friends of SHARP

Friends of SHARP are supporters of the project who, in exchange for a small annual fee of £15, recieve a number of benefits. Friends are kept up to date on all our latest research and upcoming events, can attend our Tuesday night lecture series for free, and are invited on a free 'Tea & Tour' of the excavation towards the end of every season. 

Becoming a Friend of SHARP is a great way to support the project and become more involved. You don't need to be an archaeologist, or even want to dig to be a Friend, everyone is welcome and all support is gratefully received.


Join today to get your new Friends membership card and we will look forward to welcoming you onsite in the summer.

Benefits of being a Friend of SHARP include:

  • Attend our Tuesday night lectures throughout the summer season for FREE. Each week we host a lecture from one of our own archaeologists or guest speaker on a variety of subjects, as well as updates from the SHARP excavation and Human Remains teams, in St Mary's Church, Sedgeford. Details of the 2023 lecture series coming very soon...

  • FREE 'Tea & Tour' for Friends towards the end of the season's digging to bring you up to date on our research. You will be invited to visit the site for a full tour of the excavation followed by tea and homemade cakes in the marquee with our team on hand to answer any questions. 

  • 10% off all our courses running throughout the season. Sign-up to one of our exciting courses and get a taste of working on a real archaeological excavation. Courses include Basic Excavation & Recording Techniques (BERT), Introduction to Human Skeletal Remains, Ancient Craeft & Techniques, and Archaeometallurgy Day Course. You can even book yourself on a day's digging experience. Book soon to avoid disappointment...

  • FREE parking at our Festival of Archaeology on Sunday 23rd July 2023. Join us for our annual Festival of Archaeology where we open the site to the public and share what we have learnt through our excavations with anyone who wishes to come along. Entry is free and as a Friend of SHARP, parking is too! 

  • Reduced price to all our social events. Why not come and join us on a Friday evening for a night of music, fun, and games. Each week we host onsite entertainment for everyone. This could include music from local bands, games night's hosted by our very own Entertainment Team, or dramatic musical poetry from the likes of Hugh Lupton. Whatever the occasion, Friday nights on Boneyard are not to be missed!


All for just £15 a year!
