Who are we?

We are a friendly and motivated group of volunteers who work together on archaeological projects in Lincoln and around Lincolnshire. We come from a wide variety of ages, backgrounds and experiences.

What do we do?

We work with local communities and professional archaeologists to investigate, record and research all things archaeological. Individuals are encouraged and supported to pursue special interests in particular areas such as Roman ceramics or medieval metalwork. We also work with other archaeology and heritage groups locally and nationally to exchange ideas and experience. take a look at our Current Projects page and come and join us!



How to get involved

Everybody is welcome to join us.  We currently have over a hundred volunteers of all ages, abilities and experience working with us on a variety of projects. Our great value membership is just £5 per year for adults. This gives you access to all our excavations, finds processing sessions and specialist talks. For more information contact our Membership Secretary – Nikki Goldblatt .We’d also like to hear from you if you have a project in mind that you think we can help you with.
