The ideal resource for those who want to experience the excitement of an archaeological excavation.  The guide lists sites of 200 projects in the U.K., Europe, North and South America, the Middle East and Asia, where no previous experience is required.  Excavations range from Palaeochristian churches in Jordan, to the sites of the first native Americans in Alaska to defence walls on a Venetian island.

Cultural Heritage Workcamps

For young people and students, the Guide provides an extensive list of workcamps, and of workcamp organisation networks, with hundreds of opportunities to preserve cultural heritage worldwide.  You can share the experience with other young people from all over the world.  Projects cover rebuilding dry stone walls in Italy or Greece, restoring castles in France, or preserving U.S. historical sites in National Parks etc.

For those who want to learn

Dozens of field schools are listed for those who want to learn more about archaeology and excavation techniques.  Field schools range from Roman digs in the U.K., Italy or the Middle East to an underwater archaeology school for divers in Sicily and  from palaeontology excavation techniques in western Canada, to Maya temples in Belize.  University credit may be obtained from most of the field schools.
