Archaeology Field School Description

Field school students and volunteers will spend four weeks excavating, processing artifacts, and visiting key archaeological sites in this area of the Hadrian's Wall frontier zone.

For the first time, we will also be accepting applications from volunteers who wish to focus their efforts on pottery analysis. Days will be spent on site processing pottery fragments and in the lab developing the typology. All levels of analytical experience are welcome but, due to the limited amount of space in this program, we request that you describe your interest in ancient pottery in your application.

The cost of $4,500 (USD) covers housing in the Medieval town of Durham, all meals, archaeological instruction, and weekend field trips for the four week season. Flights and travel to Durham are not included. Academic accreditation is possible (see our website). To apply and learn more about the project, go to:
