Excavation Opportunities



During these unprecedented times, the health and well-being of our customers, our team and our landowners are our top priority.
We are closely monitoring the Government guidelines and are following any instructions issued.  We have not had any cases among our staff at present and we are not aware of any cases among our customers.
The Government has advised that non-essential travel and social  contact is minimised. Therefore, with the health and safety of everyone involved in our projects in mind we have had to take some important decisions regarding digs currently planned for 2020.   Each of our digs is different in context with travel and meeting arrangements.  With that in mind we have made the following decisions. All digs have been postponed.  We are monitoring the situation regarding the Sherborne dig and will update our decision regarding possible new dates for digs as soon as we can. Those already booked on digs have already been contacted individually.
We will keep all our diggers informed about any future programmes as we move forward.

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


Digging Opportunities - £35/person/day


We will normally be on site from Sunday to Thursday each week of the dig weather permitting

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.
