Dig Experience Gift Certificates

£165.00£2,400.00

Have you always wanted to try archaeology? Do you know someone who does? Or are you just looking for something a little bit different to give someone you love? Now’s your chance to give the gift of archaeology!

Grab one of our Gift Certificates and turn someone you love into an archaeologist for a day, a weekend, a week or even two whole weeks!

You’ll face different archaeological challenges depending on which site you choose (and there are plenty to choose from).

Will you join the hunt for Anglo-Saxons on Lindisfarne? Investigate an abandoned medieval village in Yorkshire? Explore a Shaker settlement in America? Or help us find the home of Aebbe, King Oswald’s sister, in Scotland? Take a look at our Dig Calendar to see what options are available.

If you haven’t yet decided which one, don’t worry… our Gift Certificates are valid towards any DigVentures excavation within one year from purchase, so you can buy now, and make that near-impossible decision later! Plus, get a 20% discount when you book a Dirty Weekend For Two!

Where (and when) can I dig with DigVentures?

Take a look at our Dig Calendar to see what’s coming up. Our excavation season usually runs from May to September, with sites across the UK and America.

Please Note: You can start your dig experience on a Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday or Sunday, but bear in mind that we don’t dig Mondays, because even archaeologists need a day off!

How do I redeem the Gift Certificate?

When the lucky recipient is ready to choose their dig experience, they will need to send an email to hello@digventures.com including:

  • Name, email, mobile number and t-shirt size
  • Which site they want to come to
  • Which day they want to start their dig experience
  • Name of the person who bought the Gift Certificate

We’ll then confirm the dig by email, and send the information about where to meet us, what to bring, and how to make the most of the dig experience.

Dig For A Day

It’s time to dip your toe in the trench!

With a DigVentures Dig for a Day Gift Certificate, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and get in the trenches alongside the DigVentures experts – or give the gift of archaeology and send a lucky loved one to site with us!

We’ve designed a special day curriculum that will teach you everything you need to know to give digging a try. Our professional archaeologists will be alongside you in the trench every step of the way to make sure you learn and use the best-practice field techniques as you help us with our fieldwork.

No previous experience necessary – just bring your enthusiasm, a desire to learn, and a packed lunch!

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 Saturday morning 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!

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 un-turned 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. 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.

Additional Information

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 our dig experiences do not include travel to the site, and usually require people to arrange their own food and accommodation. However, circumstances do vary on a site-by-site basis so do check details on the individual project pages.

Please also note that costs for individual digs are variable, particularly outside the UK. In some cases a Gift Certificate may need to be topped-up to cover the full dig experience. In this case, the balance can easily be paid by arrangement. Please read our Terms and Conditions for further information.
