Committed to serving the community by widening access to archaeology
As a registered charity with a heritage and education focus, we help people discover and enjoy their heritage. Community archaeology projects allow local communities and individuals to become involved in the preservation, investigation and promotion of their local heritage. We have been involved with a number of partnership projects with local community groups, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and other bodies.
We work with community groups and schools to develop, fund and run their own heritage projects. Contact us for more information about the advice and support we can offer.
