Fieldwork Guides

Working closely with University of Leicester Archaeological Services (ULAS), we have produced a number of fieldwork guides to aid community archaeology groups. All our guides are free to download and use.  They are all pdfs and will each open in a new tab.   If you have comments on these or know of other guides that you would find useful please let us know via our Contact Us page and we’ll see what we can do.

This page is a work in progress, we hope you will bear with us while we update the content.
