Community Archaeology at Earth Trust
We’ve teamed up with DigVentures, who run community archaeology projects around the world. Get involved by joining one of their Earth Trust dig tours! Find out more about why we’re partnering with DigVentures.
Fascinated by archaeology?
Join an archaeology tour to experience archaeology in action and see the dig through eyes of archaeologists – and the people who lived here thousands of years ago!
One of the most exciting parts of archaeology is that you can never be sure what you will unearth. The experts hope to find items from as far as the Pre-Historic, Roman and Iron Age periods. Come along to our events to find out what, or who, we discover!
DigVenture’s experts will take you on a tour of the open dig site, revealing history as you have never seen it before.
We recommended a minimum age of 7 years old, at parental discretion.
