The Sussex School of Archaeology Limited (SSA) is a new and exciting venture providing archaeology courses to the general public and more specialised training courses for amateur and professional archaeologists.
The SSA course tutors are all specialists, most of whom taught recently at the University of Sussex and are very experienced in their fields, thus providing some of the best archaeological training available and we hope to offer this at reasonable fees.
We will run a series of SSA day schools, evening classes and trips, together with practical training courses to suit the interested armchair archaeologist as well as the keen amateur or professional looking to enhance their existing knowledge and skills.
All SSA courses can be valid for Continuous Professional Development for members of the IfA.
