Earthwatch Institute: Excavating the Roman Empire in Britain

Boston, MA

Overview

During Earthwatch Institute's EXCAVATING THE ROMAN EMPIRE IN BRITAIN you will volunteer as a member of the archaeological team, you’ll help researchers excavate Arbeia and its environs to better understand how the Romans and the inhabitants of northern Britain came into contact with each other.

You’ll work in small groups, rotating among many tasks, including excavation using a trowel or more robust digging equipment, recording site data, site surveying, and sampling, cleaning, and processing finds.

When you're not digging into the past, you can spend your recreational time along Hadrian's Wall or enjoying local culture in South Shields or in the historic cities of Newcastle, York, Durham, and Edinburgh just a few hours’ travel from the field site. Most teams will stay in a cozy local guesthouse.
