Centre for Applied Archaeology
An important part of the project is creating opportunities for local people to volunteer on archaeological and archive activities, working alongside professional archaeologists and museum curators to help look after the site and the archive of material excavated from the site in the 1920s and 1930s. A group of volunteers are currently based at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery, learning how to catalogue, photograph and examine archaeological finds, develop a digital game. On site volunteers have also carried out a geophysical survey of the site - mapping the underground features. We also have a team of volunteers set up to help excavate archaeological remains and to carry out repair work to the monument.
Opportunities to volunteer
Registration has now closed for all museum-based activities, the community excavation and the site improvement works. We are still looking for local allotment holders to collect finds from their allotment plots (Craven Vale, Whitehawk Hill and Race Hill allotments).
If you have an allotment and are interested, please complete the online registration form.
