Every week our teams of archaeologists are uncovering interesting finds across the country. Whether it is an artefact or an ecofact, each piece of evidence helps us build a more detailed picture of the past. 

Join us in an exciting journey of discovery.

James is in the field in the South West region


James is dancing in the sunshine instead of the rain for once. Being an archaeologist in the field gives you a very special appreciation for good, dry weather!

With more rain today, Cami shared this photo from her days working on the HS2 site at Fleet Marston, Buckinghamshire. Sometimes you need to get through more than just mud to get to the archaeology...

Ed is in the Oxford office 

Ed is working on some pretty spectacular Samian pottery sherds from a site in the North of England. This one has beautiful decoration representing gladiators, dogs chasing one another, and a chariot. It's so beautiful that he couldn't resist sharing it!
