Excavation Opportunities

Archeoscan is offering the opportunity to excavate at various interesting archaeological sites throughout the year.  We have recently surveyed a number of sites in Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire. We currently have a number of sites for excavation generally from April to October each year.


Please see the Digging Dates page for those sites that are open for booking


Dig for a Day (or more)




We will normally be on site from Sunday to Thursday each week of the dig weather permitting (check individual site details)






Slimbridge, Gloucestershire (19 Sep to 12 Oct)

selected dates

We are returning to the Roman site at Slimbridge that we left open from earlier in the year.  Those that were with us then will remember that we had just started to uncover what we believe is the main villa building that accompanies the large aisled barn that we have located within the Roman compound.  During this session we will be focussing on the main villa buildings.


The dates that we will still have available on this site are:


Tuesday 19th September to Friday 22nd September

Sunday 24th September to Thursday 28th September

Monday 02nd  October

Sunday 08th  October to Thursday 12th October

To be placed on the mailing list email us.


We notify the mailing list of dig opportunities before they are relased on the website so contact us to hear of the digs at the earliest opportunity


There may be some short notice opportunities that will be notified to the mailing list first


Digs are very popular and places sell very quickly

How to Book a Dig

Please contact us on archeoscan@hotmail.co.uk or digenquiries@archeoscan.com.


Provisional bookings for digs will be confirmed by email along with a Participant's Charter detailing where the dig is and what to expect on the day.


Places will be confirmed on the dig on receipt of advance payment.



Excavations are subject to the vagaries of the weather and agricultural regimes.  We will attempt to give plenty of notice in the event of any variation to the planned digging dates.  In the event of poor weather refunds will be made in accordance with the cancellation policy that will be sent with your booking.
