Bamburgh Research Project is open to people aged 12 and over. People under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. We welcome all experience levels, from newcomers to the subject through to professionals. We aim to accommodate special needs or requests whenever possible, but do get in touch via email if you have any questions.

We aim to deliver a well rounded archaeological field experience, offering placements to those who wish to gain ‘hands on’ practical knowledge of archaeological techniques. Basic skills are covered in the first two weeks of any stay and for participants who stay longer we aim to develop an in-depth understanding of field skills, including excavation, survey, finds processing, recording techniques and post excavation processes.

Our tuition fee is £300 per week.
