Dirty Weekend

If there’s a better way to unwind after a week at the office, we’ll eat our hardhats!

Dirty Weekends are two days of action-packed archaeology, and chosen by Lonely Planet as one of the 52 best cultural experiences in Europe.

Each one starts with a Friday evening rendezvous, where the details of your archaeological mission will be revealed. You’ll then have two full days on Saturday and Sunday, to dig and carry out plenty of other archaeological activities as well – each tailored to the site you’re working on.

*Please note that if you can’t make it to site for a weekend, you can convert it into two consecutive days digging with us during the week instead.

Dirty Weekend for Two!

And what’s better than getting down and dirty? Getting down and dirty with friends! Book yourself and a pal in for a Dirty Weekend, and we’ll give you a 20% discount… Now that’s what we call friends with benefits!

*Please note that if you can’t make it to site for a weekend, you can convert it into two consecutive days digging with us during the week instead.

Dig for a Week

It’s time to let your inner Indiana Jones out to play – or send a lucky Marion Ravenwood to site to test her trowel with our team!

Want to get deeper into archaeology We’ve designed a special week-long curriculum that will teach you everything you need to know, or build on the skills you already have.

Each site comes with its own unique challenges, and our professional archaeologists will be alongside you in the trench every step of the way, helping you not only dig like an archaeologist, but think like one too!

You’ll start learning how to interpret the things you find, and use our world-first archaeology app to make them available to the world!

No previous experience necessary, but if you have done some digging already and want to increase the breadth and depth of your skills, this is the perfect way to do it. DigVentures’ archaeologists will assess your field skills in a one-on-one evaluation, and make sure you walk away with the confidence to use them – wherever archaeology takes you.

Dig for Two Weeks

Seasoned pros would trade their favourite trowel for the opportunity to spend two weeks in the field with our team!

Your time on site with us will be an immersive experience, in which you get to be part of the archaeological process from start to finish. That includes geophysics, finds processing, and even the basics of post-excavation analysis.

We’ll leave no stone unturned in making sure you learn everything you want to know, including what archaeologists really talk about in the pub after work…

No previous experience necessary, but if you’re looking to build your skills, or are a student wanting to fulfill your field school requirement, this is the perfect way to do it.

People with Disabilities

We strive to do our best to ensure everyone has a chance to experience archaeology, and have worked with many differently-abled participants on our sites. We are very happy to discuss special accommodations on a case-by-case basis and do whatever we can to ensure a safe and exciting experience for everyone. Please notify us before booking of any disabilities so that we can discuss options for participation.

IMPORTANT: Travel & Accommodation

Please note that Gift Certificates for dig experiences do not cover travel to the site, costs incurred before or after the experience, or the cost of passports, visas, and vaccinations. In most cases, room and board will be additional, however do read the specifications for each dig carefully as circumstances vary on a site-by-site basis.

Costs for individual digs are variable, so the full amount of the dig experience may exceed the Gift Certificate amount, particularly for digs outside the UK. In this case, the balance can easily be paid by arrangement. Please read our Terms and Conditions for further information.
