North Cornwall Heritage is offering the opportunity for volunteers to take part in their ongoing training excavations. The aim is to provide a fun, relaxed, and safe environment coupled with tuition from highly trained and experienced professional archaeologists. Participants will receive a high quality, industry-standard education in archaeological practice. North Cornwall Heritage runs multiple sites each season, offering varied learning environments, while a flexible curriculum allows for a more tailored, personal tuition. No experience is required to take part. Sites include a 13th-century deserted Medieval village and a large, pentagonal, double-ditched enclosure of unknown date.
While project dates are subject to change, all excavations will take part during one of two seasons, the first in July and the second in August/September. There is a modest participation fee, and facilities, food, and camping can be purchased at an additional cost. Students will receive a discount. Minimum age is 14.
