We welcome all volunteers regardless of background!


      If you have at least three weeks' excavation experience, or an equivalent basic course in field archaeology from SHARP or elsewhere, you can book to take part as a volunteer archaeologist in one of a variety of roles. 


      Please note that volunteers are allocated depending on the workforce needs of the site, which change regularly, though we will accommodate personal preference wherever possible.


      If you have no previous experience in archaeology, it is a requirement to enrol first in a Basic Excavation and Recording Techniques (BERT) course, after completion of which you are welcome to stay on as an excavation volunteer for the cost of facilities only.


      Please note: persons aged 14 or 15 are welcome to attend with a parent or guardian accompanying. Ages 16 and 17 may attend unaccompanied with parental or guardian permission.
