Elmet Archaeological Services will be running their annual archaeological field school at Hickleton Hall Prisoner of War camp near Doncaster, South Yorkshire, for the fourth consecutive summer. At the time of printing, exact dates had not been confirmed. However, archaeological work is likely to commence in late July, and continue until mid-August.
This project requires of volunteers of all ages to help with archaeological excavation of WW2 features at Hickleton Hall Prisoner of War camp, with the aim of understanding the form and function of buildings within the site, and to assess the extent of the camp.
No prior archaeological experience is necessary, as all training will be given on site by our friendly, experienced field staff. Attendance is free of charge, though we do ask that volunteers register with us prior to the dig as we only have a limited number of spaces available.
This excavation is non-residential, so unfortunately we cannot provide accommodation for volunteers. Furthermore, we do not have on site catering facilities so volunteers may wish to bring a packed lunch.
For more (up to date) information on this excavation, and all our other projects requiring volunteers this summer, please visit our website at:
