Was just wondering if anyone knew if any of the summer digs (volunteer education type ones) were looking for any experienced archaeologists to help out for the summer? Seeing as I have been turned down for all the non-archaeology jobs I've applied to for lack of ''job stability in employment history'' I want to find something to do that doesnt entail me signing on and sleeping on my parents sofa!

I know its a long shot but I'm pretty willing to try anything right now :-)

Are you looking for paid or unpaid work? I can certainly give you some addresses of voluntary projects, but maybe that isn't what you want.....

well Preferably paid but at the moment I'm interested in unpaid too!
Sorry I'll rephrase that. Would you be able to pay if it was a voluntary project with a fee involved?

ah i see, no I wouldnt be able to pay! I was kind of hoping to find a project who might want a volunteer supervisor or something?
in what areas of the u.k. are you looking for volunteer work?
ideally the north of england, so I can find friends sofas to sleep on lol!
lol. You're best bet (if you are looking for volunteer work) would be to check with the universities in the north.

UCLAN and Hull come to mind.

Have a look at their websites and look for some contact details for the Archaeology division.

Hope it helps and good luck Smile
For companies.. look here:

and zoom in on the contractors map

all the contact details you need.
in fact more than enough details I am sure
Reason: your past is my past
