Mark Spooner feature imagesSay hello to Mark Spooner!

Why has Mark joined the Digital Dig Team? It’s a common theme in our Venturers, and a story we never tire of hearing: ‘I’ve always wanted to study archaeology but somehow my life took a different path, and its something I’ve always regretted.  I’ve often thought about going back to university to study but never taken the plunge.  DigVentures seemed like a great way to support a worthy cause and finally dip my toe into the subject and see whether it might really be for me. Looking forward to spending a week trowelling with you all!’

Support great archaeology

DigVentures crowdfunds archaeological projects that everyone can be part of, in the UK and overseas. With help from people all over the world, we investigate the past and publish our discoveries online for free. Support one of our digs and you can choose to excavate alongside our team, or watch our discoveries online!
