Community Archaeology 

Archaeological Services engages in an extensive programme of community projects and outreach activity in the north-east of England. We aim to connect local communities with professional archaeologists, and create opportunities for people to get involved and receive training in practical archaeology. 

We have conducted and funded a wide range of community projects, often in partnership with other organisations. These have included archaeological excavations and geophysical surveys in County Durham, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, Cumbria and North Yorkshire. Our work forms part of our commitment to Sharing Expertise in North East England.
