Fieldwork

AFOB

Each year thousands of students and volunteers go into the field to experience an excavation firsthand, and the Archaeological Fieldwork Opportunities Bulletin (AFOB) helps them find a project. AFOB is one of the largest fieldwork resources in the world, featuring hundreds of listings for archaeological projects around the globe. The listings are continuously updated throughout the year and provide full details, including in-depth project description, project size, age requirements, academic credit availability, accommodation information, bibliographies, and more. Search the Globe for a Dig.

Interactive Digs

Not everyone is able to get out into the field and put their trowel into the ground, so let us bring the excavation experience to you. The AIA and ARCHAEOLOGY’s Interactive Digs allow you to follow the progress of excavations around the globe. Participating projects post fieldnotes, personal journals, photos, videos—everything you need to feel like you’re part of the team. Start digging in today!
