What is an archaeological volunteer?
There is a range of tasks that can be undertaken on an archaeological excavation, fieldwalk or survey. These vary from the well-known digging with trowels, spades and so on, to explaining the site to the public or washing finds, holding a tape measure and watching for finds in the barrows. They allow us to explore and record the unwritten traces of our past.
