Volunteer on an Archaeology Project with Projects Abroad and take part in documenting history.
Understanding the past teaches us about our present and our future. With a Projects Abroad Archaeological volunteering project you’ll really get your hands dirty and unearth the clues that teach us about human behaviour in the past and what it means to us now.
If you’re thinking about a future in this field of work, hands-on experience is key. You’ll connect with professionals and get the skills and experiences you need to really understand what archaeology in the field means. You will build your confidence and understanding, and your experiences will help your CV to really stand out.

What will I gain from an Archaeology Project?
By joining one of our Archaeology volunteer opportunities, you’ll get the skills you need to fulfil your ambitions, while giving back to a community that needs help.
Here are just some of the benefits that our previous volunteers talk about:
- Soft skills like teamwork, leadership, resilience, organising, planning, and time management.
- Support and contact with professional archaeologists.
- Experience in hands-on archaeology and field work.
- The ability to work and empathise with people of different cultures and backgrounds, helping to develop a ‘global mindset’.
- Confidence from pushing past your comfort zone.
All of the above will enhance your CV, UCAS applications, and your personal development.
Why does this project matter?
Geology, history, art and engineering all come together to help us better understand the past. Your work on these projects will help us better understand ancient civilisations, as you map and document your findings. Generations of future archaeologists and historians may come to rely on your project’s contribution.
