Based on a research excavation in the midlands the field school provides the opportunity  for students to gain practical hands-on experience of archaeological fieldwork on a working excavation site.


The field school runs weekend courses, excavation days and  a summer training excavation. Our Summer Excavation this year will be from 4th to 8th September 2017


All our activities are open to students of archaeology and anyone with an interest in the subject. No prior experience  is required.


The field school welcomes participation by individuals, interest groups and organisations including local historical and archaeological groups.


In addition the field school runs bespoke courses for universities, schools and archaeological societies.


Students have the opportunity to participate in excavation, recording and planning archaeological features, finds processing, site surveying and geophysical surveying.
