Poulton Research Project


Notice of AGM 2021

Our AGM is being held on 18th February

Registration & Costs


We have run courses at Poulton for nearly 20 years now. They have been very well received and the vast majority of people who have attended would recommend them to others and come again.


On our volunteers' page, you will find the answer all of your questions about volunteering at Poulton. We are not asking you to simply wash pots or move spoil. Within hours of your arrival on-site we expect you to be excavating serious archaeology.

What Our Students Say

We have a very high satisfaction rating from our course attendees (the details for the latest 2013) season are here). Everyone who has attended over the last 4 years would recommend us to others and would come again.
