The Durotriges Project ‘Big Dig’ Field School is a Bournemouth University summer field school by current students and experienced archaeologists. The fieldwork takes place within Dorset, a county of outstanding natural beauty and one of the best-preserved archaeological landscapes in Britain.
The Durotriges Project is studying the role that Dorset's ancient Iron Age societies played in networks of production, exchange and communication with the rest of Britain and the continent. Students from our range of archaeology courses are able to gain hands-on experience at a fascinating site examining prehistoric roundhouses, production areas and cemeteries, while those with an interest in archaeology, Dorset's history, or the project as a whole are welcome to join us.
The Big Dig runs from 6 June to 8 July and you can register to volunteer via Eventbrite.
Please note: You must be aged 16 or over to take part. Further information, including essential kit, specific timings, and joining instructions, can be obtained by emailing: [email protected].
