THE GUIDE TO ARCHAEOLOGICAL FIELDWORK OPPORTUNITIES OUTSIDE THE UK
Archaeology Abroad comes out in spring each year and provides information about hundreds of varied and exciting archaeological fieldwork opportunities outside the UK suitable for all pockets, archaeological interests and levels of experience. In addition to excavation, field school and workshop listings, the annual edition of Archaeology Abroad includes comprehensive guidance notes and advice about joining a dig abroad, plus extensive directory-style sections on the British Schools and Institutes abroad and a wide range of other relevant organisations, learned societies, publications, and web-based resources.
Archaeology Abroad Email Updates are prepared and circulated three or four times a year as a supplement to the annual edition of Archaeology Abroad and keep subscribers fully updated with details of additional archaeological excavation and field school opportunities throughout the year. As the year progresses, Email Updates increasingly list projects for the autumn or winter months and into the following year.
Archaeology Abroad and Archaeology Abroad Email Updates are produced as Adobe PDF files and are fully interactive with live email and web address links to all listings.
Archaeology Abroad Fieldwork Awards are offered annually to help subscribers meet their dig expenses. All Individual Subscribers are eligible to apply irrespective of nationality, age or previous fieldwork experience. Awards of £100–£200 may be given as a contribution towards the cost of travel, participation or field school fees, or to help pay for other appropriate dig expenses, such as equipment. Excavation projects or field schools applied must be listed in either the annual edition of Archaeology Abroad or in an Archaeology Abroad Email Update. Recipients are required to write a short report about their dig experiences which are published in the annual edition of Archaeology Abroad.
Regretfully, Archaeology Abroad Fieldwork Awards are currently not available, but it is hoped to reopen the scheme in future.
Archaeology Abroad Fact Sheets are available free of charge and provide some general information about archaeological fieldwork in selected countries (eg Germany, The Netherlands). A fact sheet on Digging Abroad in a Gap Year is a useful guide for those considering digging as a gap year option.
