What our Venturers say

I had a brilliant time with DigVentures. My experience has inspired me to become a volunteer at Fishbourne Roman Palace and with a local archaeological society. I'll be back with DV in 2013! - Hugh Fiske, Sussex
I flew over from Australia for all three weeks of the DV 2012 dig. I learned so much - and I would have never had an opportunity like that in Oz. DigVentures is such a great way to be a part of making archaeology happen, as well as learning for yourself. I can totally recommend the DV team as great teachers and fun people (and they love cake!) - Louise Glasson, Australia
Louise Glasson
Great team, and the best place to learn and enjoy archaeology. I'll definitely be back next year!
John Cooper
I have no archaeological skills or knowledge, but within my first hour I was in the trench with professionals, making genuine archaeological discoveries. I went home proud and ecstatic. There is little in life that amateurs can usefully do alongside the experts, but DigVentures has made archaeology one of those rare experiences where we can not only join in, but make a contribution.
