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 first dig of the 2024 season is now open for booking. 


We are returning to the Roman site at Slimbridge, Gloucestershire that we have been working on for the past few years as part of the Slimbridge Archaeological Landscape Project.  The site has been covered with temporary covers over the Winter months so we can pick up from where we left off at the end of last season.  Those that were with us then will remember that we had uncovered a large bath house suite to the West of the aisled barn.  This is in association with a large villa building. During 2024 we will expand the trenches around the bath house to explore what remains of the main villa buildings.  Finds associated with the remains suggest a 1st to 3rd century villa within an exciting hitherto undiscovered Late Iron Age and Roman landscape.
