OA East Volunteer Application Form for Wimpole Hall Excavation

This summer, Oxford Archaeology East will be excavating the site of a late Iron Age and Roman settlement at 'Lamp Hill' (south of the current overflow car park) ahead of the development of a new visitor centre and car park for the Wimpole Estate. Public engagement is an important part of our work as a registered educational charity, and we will be involving volunteers in our fieldwork as well as providing events and opportunities for visitors to view and understand the ongoing excavations.

Before completing this form, please download and read the Oxford Archaeology Health & Safety Policy from our website: https://oxfordarchaeology.com/images/Oxford-Archaeology-HS-policy-2017-18.pdf You will be asked to confirm that you have read and understood this document before submitting the application form.

Volunteers are not expected to have any prior experience. The minimum age for volunteering on this site is 16 years old. Volunteers will need to need to make a commitment for the full working week (5 days, except the week of the August bank holiday), and will be offered a place for one week during the five-week excavation (Monday 13th August - Friday 14th September 2018). Volunteer hours on site will be 10am - 3pm.


There will be less physical roles such as processing artefacts and assisting with outreach activities, as well as excavation. Volunteers will have regular breaks and welfare facilities will be provided.


The deadline for applications is 12 noon on Friday 27th July 2018 and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. You will be contacted shortly afterwards about the allocation of volunteer places.
