Weekend courses

This course will give beginners and those with some basic knowledge the chance to take part in fieldwork based at our All Saints Church, North Street site. If you have more experience and want to attend, that is not a problem as we can easily gear the training towards your experience and ability. You will get the chance to excavate the site, and explore archaeological techniques with the experts from York Archaeological Trust, as well as see behind the scenes and find out more. This is a fantastic opportunity to experience the excitement and discovery of urban archaeology.
