ICE AND FIRE is a community project designed to explore and record prehistoric archaeology at risk in eroding areas where artefacts have been found on the surface. Fieldwork is now complete for this summer but there will be opportunities for post-excavation work and fieldwalking later in the year, offering the opportunity to be part of a friendly team.

LEARN NEW SKILLS!
Volunteers will have the chance to learn about archaeological fieldwork techniques, recording and finds analysis under expert guidance – no previous experience is needed. We will train you. Fieldwork opportunities include excavation of test pits as well as seasonal field-walking. Indoor activities will include finds processing and analysis. You can contact the project team to register your interest.
FIELDWORK AND POST-EXCAVATION DATES
- 2017 fieldwork is now complete – many thanks to all our volunteers
- Post-excavation work events such as finds washing will be announced to all those who have registered an interest
- We hope to conduct fieldwalking when agricultural schedules allow and we’re confident we’ll be back next year too!
- Under 18s are welcome and should to be accompanied by a parent or guardian
For students, early career archaeologists and regular excavation volunteers, the Archaeology Skills Passport is a great (and inexpensive) way to record your learning and experiences. The comprehensive Passport is increasingly used by Universities, commercial employers and community ventures.
