Community Engagement and Audience Development
York Archaeological Trust offers a wide range of services for community groups who want to research the historic landscape around them. Our Community Archaeologist can visit you to discuss your project and can offer talks to your group or run taster workshops in archaeology for you. He can also help you to apply for funding to carry out your own archaeological research.
If you have already obtained funding York Archaeological Trust can help you. Backed by a team of experienced archaeologists our Community Archaeologist can offer geophysics, field walking, assessing aerial photographs, walk over surveys, test pit surveys, excavation, finds assessment and much more.
Study of the past has become an increasingly popular and diverse activity enjoyed by people of all ages. All places have a history and it is the way that we explore our past that brings it to life. Nationally renowned as one of the leading proponents of Community Archaeology, York Archaeological Trust helps many communities study their past in many interesting and exciting ways – by interpreting landscapes, recording old buildings, finding lost settlements, identifying battlefield sites, recording stories and oral histories, re-enactment, and finding archaeological remains!
