Volunteer with the archaeological service


Suffolk County Council Archaeological Service work with volunteers to promote, protect and conserve the archaeology in Suffolk.

Unfortunately, we do not have a field team and so cannot routinely provide fieldwork opportunities. Try contacting your local commercial archaeological contract unit or local archaeological society who do conduct fieldwork more regularly.

Occasionally, we are involved with community archaeology projects; we will advertise these here as and when opportunities become available.

Current community archaeology projects:

Rendlesham Revealed: Anglo-Saxon Life in South-East Suffolk.

Brecks, Fen Edge and Rivers Landscape Partnership.

Fieldwork opportunities for these projects usually take place in the summer and autumn and will be advertised as and when they arise.

Sign up to our e-newsletter to express an interest and be kept up-to-date on our projects and volunteering opportunities.
