In the Field

Archaeology at Canterbury Christ Church University is not confined to our lecture theatres. All students on the Archaeology Programme undertake fully funded field placements in Years 2 and 3.

Students on the Single and Combined Honours Archaeology programmes undertake fully funded fieldwork placements in Years 2 and 3. We offer our own bespoke field school in East Sussex ‘The Culver Archaeological Project’; it has full facilities, and you will receive training in all aspects of field archaeology by professional archaeologists.The placements provide training in key archaeological fieldwork methods, including:

  • Excavation
  • On-site recording techniques
  • Survey and geophysics
  • Finds processing
  • Environmental sampling

To date, our students have participated in archaeological research projects in Kent, Sussex, Glamorgan, Monmouthshire, Yorkshire, and as far afield as Crete.
