Excavating the Roman Empire in Britain
|Goal||Discover how Romans lived in Northern England.|
|Task||Help researchers excavate in Northern England.|
As a volunteer member of the archaeological team, you’ll help a seasoned team of researchers to excavate Arbeia and its environs to better understand how the Romans and the inhabitants of northern Britain came into contact with each other—and were forever changed by the experience. You’ll work in small groups, rotating among many tasks, including excavation using a trowel or more robust digging equipment, recording site data, site surveying, and sampling, cleaning, and processing finds.
