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)




Guiting Power (June/July 2022)


Our next dig is at Guiting Power, Gloucestershire (near Bourton-on-the-Water) on selected dates between June 26th  to 21st July 2022. We conducted an initial evaluation on this site in 2021 and uncovered the remains of a Medieval manor and its associated outbuilding complex and we are returning to this site this year to conduct a larger scale excavation on the footprint of the main manor house building.


The dates that we will be on site are:


Sunday 26th to Thursday 30th June

Sunday 03rd to Thursday 07th July

Sunday 10th to Thursday 14th July

Sunday 17th to Thursday 21st  July


We still have places on most days.  Let me know if any date suits you and we can book you in and send you details.



Slimbridge, Gloucestershire (August/September 2022)

We are pleased and excited to announce that bookings are now being taken for our excavation at Slimbridge, Gloucestershire on selected dates between  16th August to 08th September 2022. You may recall that we conducted an initial evaluation on this site in 2020 and then a more extensive excavation on 2021.  We uncovered evidence for a large Roman stone building with further evidence of underfloor heating and a possible bath suite.  This was all superimposed on a background of an Iron Age settlement.  This year we intend to carry on from where we left off last year and continue to explore the Roman

buildings on the site.


The dates that we are on this site are:


Tuesday 16th to Thursday 18th August

Sunday 21st   to Thursday 25th August

Sunday 28th August to Thursday 01st September

Sunday 04th to Thursday 08th September
