Volunteering is a great place to start if you’re looking for a career in the field of archaeology.

You can learn new skills, gain experience in different areas, learn about the different kinds of work available and make some crucial contacts. It can also be a satisfying and productive way to spend a few hours.

If you know who you would like to volunteer for, it is often worthwile contacting them directly. Many organisations, including NIAF and our Members, would jump at the opportunity to get some help. Some organisations even provide opportunities for unqualified archaeologists to take part in digs.
