Canterbury Archeological Trust

Canterbury Archaeological Trust now offers a series of archaeology day schools. These courses are aimed at all levels, from the complete beginner to the experienced 'old hand'.

The tutors, drawn from the Trust's staff of professional archaeologists, have years of field and specialist experience.

The courses draw upon the Trust's resources and extensive archives to provide 'hands-on' learning, rooted in a real-world, vocational, approach to archaeology. Whether someone is just starting out in archaeology, or seeking to develop specific skills or areas of interest, we have a course to suit.

The venue for most courses will be:

Canterbury Archaeological Trust,
92a Broad Street,
Canterbury, CT1 2LU.
