Dyfed Archaeological Trust has many exciting opportunities to get involved with throughout the year. The CALCH project, for example, is investigating the forgotten history of the lime industry on the Black Mountain, located in south-east Wales. There are all sorts of ways to take part, from excavation to research, with no experience necessary. There is also an on-going Arfordir ‘Coastline’ project which aims to collaborate with coastal communities and heritage groups in order to collect information and ensure on-going monitoring of our coastal heritage.
Participants working with the Trust will be able to gain experience in all aspects of archaeology including excavating and recording finds, taking accurate photographic records and detailed field notes, as well as helping with research and other office-based tasks. With a host of other projects continuing throughout the area, volunteers from all over Wales are encouraged to get involved. There is no cost to participate. Under-18s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
