Digging on the Danube POSTPONED, near Vukovar, CROATIA 🇭🇷

The banks of the River Danube are one of the most fertile regions in Europe. That's why, six thousand years ago, people came to live here and developed some of the most extraordinary Neolithic and Bronze Age settlements on the continent.

Our friends at the Lovas Archaeology Project and the Archaeological Museum in Zagreb have invited us to come and help excavate.

We're assembling a team of seasoned Venturers to come with us. Together, we'll experience archaeology unlike anything you've seen before, and help a rural community conserve and explore a remarkable part of their history.

I'm interested!
Sudeley Castle (postponed) Sudeley Castle, Gloucestershire (UK)

Sudeley Castle is well known as one of the most beautiful Tudor palaces in England. DigVentures is returning to continue unearthing the remains of long-lost Tudor garden, and the banqueting house built for Elizabeth I. This is one of the most stunningly-situated excavation sites we've ever experienced!
