About Access Cambridge Archaeology

Main website: www.access.arch.cam.ac.uk

Access Cambridge Archaeology is an outreach unit within the Department of Archaeology at the University of Cambridge, based in the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research. The primary aim of Access Cambridge Archaeology is to enhance educational, economic and social well-being through active participation in archaeology. It seeks to achieve this by running novel, fun and challenging activities for members of the public, including school pupils, to develop new skills and confidence; raise their educational aspirations, boost their academic performance; enjoy learning for the love of it; take part in new archaeological excavations and make new discoveries about themselves and the world around them.

Access Cambridge Archaeology activities and events are available for people of all ages and interests. Field Academies and Discovery Days provide for young people of secondary school age, with junior versions of these tailored for younger pupils, while anybody can get involved in community excavations. Keep up-to-date with all our news and events on this blog and find out more on our website.

    I was sent some photos of your work in Blythburgh by Meryl Doney about the the dig you undertook for our church magazine Heart and Sole which covers eight churches in our area of NE Suffolk. Unfortunately two of them, the van picture and the children looking at their finds I could not copy to put in the magazine. If you are happy for me to use them please could you email them to me at the address below. I look forward to hearing from as soon as possible. Many thanks, Matthew Horwood editor of H&S.
