Celebrating National Volunteers Week

A happy Rob with his pot

Rob our longest  serving volunteer – 30 years!

We are lucky to have such wonderful volunteers to work with,  as a charity we are able to offer opportunities for all ages to get experience of all aspects of archaeology and heritage. Whether you want to do something you have always dreamed of doing, or want experience before deciding it’s what you want to do at University or as a career we will try and find a place for you.

Here are some of our archaeology  ‘gang’ of all ages and abilities. To all our volunteers we would just like to say a big ‘THANK YOU’  for all your  hard work, patience and cakes 🙂  

It’s an impossible task to include all our lovely volunteers so here is just a taste of what they get up to…
