Volunteering on an Archaeology Project Overseas
Archaeology is a field which encompasses a variety of different areas. It essentially attempts to study the cultures of the past by looking at the physical remains; this means it includes elements of history, architecture, geology, anthropology, art, surveying and engineering, as well as countless other subjects. Our placements attempt to let you experience as much of this diversity as possible
Our archaeology related projects are located in Peru and Romania. Either location offers something very different, but they both benefit from the same unrivalled support from our directly employed local staff and the security that comes from having a community of Projects Abroad volunteers close at hand.
"It certainly gives you a great time away from the pressures of home, and in a completely new and fascinating environment, to pick up a new skill, meet new friends, sample new foods, embrace a new culture, and visit possibly the most amazing place in the entire world."
