Archaeology South-East provides placement opportunities for school and university students, covering excavation to surveying to environmental and finds analysis.
School work experience placements
Each year we provide a limited number of one-week placement opportunities for students at local schools who are interested in history and archaeology and want to find out more. The placement offers an insight into a number of aspects of commercial archaeology; as well as an introduction to working in the field, the students will also learn about archaeological illustration, photography. and have an opportunity to try archaeological finds processing. If you are interested in a school work experience placement please contact us directly or ask your school to contact us on your behalf.
Further information about becoming involved in archaeology through local societies, training excavations, or at a higher education level can be found on the Current Archaeology website.
We also provide year-long placements for UCL Institute of Archaeology students as part of the BA Archaeology with Placement Year. Students on this placement work alongside ASE archaeologists as a part of a professional team to excavate, survey, study, manage and conserve historic sites and finds. You can read about the experience of one of our past students in a series of blog posts: IoA Placement 2020-21: Alex Allen.
Please note that we cannot provide transport or accommodation for any of these placements, and travel to and from the offices must be arranged by the student.
