Founded in 2011, DigVentures is an innovative social enterprise committed to designing, developing and delivering community archaeology projects throughout the UK and further afield.
Operating at the forefront of culture, technology and entrepreneurship, we’re putting archaeology squarely in front of worldwide trends that are helping to achieve sustainability in these challenging times. As an Institute for Archaeologists Registered Organisation and the first-ever IfA Accredited Field School, our work and opportunities are quality-assured at the top of the industry standard.
If you’re an archaeologist or heritage site manager, we help you connect directly with a worldwide crowd of interested and actively engaged participants; if you’re a supporter of archaeology, this is your chance to join in, learn new skills and contribute to internationally important research, knowing that without your help it would never have happened.
Over the last year we have raised over £55K in seed funding from a globally networked crowd of supporters – money that has gone on to leverage four times that amount for our project partners in match funding. Our motto – archaeology in your hands – is what joins the dots between our many different projects.
