Can HAARG offer you paid work ?

Can I dig and what experience do I need to have ?

Yes you can dig and no experience is necessary. We will train you on how to excavate.

Do I need a trowel?

No, as we will provide a trowel for your first few days.

What should I bring?

Wet weather clothes, sun factor, large hat (depending on the weather), wear sensible shoes or boots plus your own refreshments.

Can I take part in geophysics?

Yes we have our own geophysical equipment and training is available.

What other tasks can I do on site?

Most archaeological techniques are conducted on site. Training can be given in site planning and section drawing, levelling, surveying and the recording of context sheets.
