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.


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!

Jess popped in to see our colleague Richard and our super volunteer Lynn in the Lancaster office. Here they are washing finds (spot the newly clean pottery sherds in the tray!) today. Thanks for all your help, Lynn!

Paddy is excavating with Cosmo in our East region


Paddy's lovely cockapoo Cosmo is proudly posing atop the Roman road excavation at Priors Hall, Corby, being happy about being involved in Roman archaeology and all the attention. It makes us wonder, how did the Romans say "Who's a good boy?"
