Archaeology Experience Weekends

July 20, 2019 @ 9:00 am - July 21, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

Copped Hall
Upshire Road
Epping, ESS CM16 5HR United Kingdom


Designed for absolute beginners, this is an opportunity to dig and to handle finds on a “live” site, where you can help with an ongoing investigation.

A professional archaeologist will introduce you to methods of excavation and the interpretation of finds. You can expect to spend most of your time actually digging, and a team of supervisors will be available to help you.

People of all ages (8yr +) and backgrounds are welcome, but to make the most of the weekend you need to be reasonably physically fit. (Under 16’s must be accompanied by a responsible adult who has also signed up for the weekend.)

Cost: £60 per person per weekend.
