Archeoscan provides opportunities for public involvement in archaeology. Our most popular activity is giving people the chance to participate in an excavation at exciting sites in the Cotswolds area. We also assist communities in conducting geophysical surveys of sites of interest to them.  Equally, we visit schools and colleges in support of the national curriculum to provide hands-on experiences of archaeology



To date many people have enjoyed excavating on our sites.  These have included Roman villa sites, a possible new Roman pottery kiln site and a possible Iron Age and Roman port on the River Severn, and discovering a lost Medieval manor in the Cotswolds. Thank you to all who participated in the digs and contributed in so many ways. 



 2024 DIGS

We are pleased to announce that the bookings for the excavation of the Medieval Manor at Guiting Power in the Gloucestershire Cotswolds are now open.


We are returning to this picturesque village in the Cotswolds to continue to excavate the Medieval Manor that we started work on 3 years ago.  The archaeology has been covered during the Winter months so we can carry on from where we left off in 2023.  There are significant walls and floors of the 11th and 12th century buildings left to be we look to establish a wider footprint and plan for the buildings this year. The remains and the pottery analysis, along with the recovery of a hammered silver coin, suggest we are excavating a high status manor house probably erected in the early Norman period and used and altered for many centuries after that.
