Archaeology is an excellent way to engage your community with their heritage and landscape, creating a sense of place that leads to greater community cohesion. We work with developers, heritage organisations, property managers, local government, charitable organisations, volunteer groups and special interest groups to help them build stronger relationships with the public.
With the right activities, materials and enthusiastic experts, we can help you put context around your projects and improve community and individual wellbeing.
The Community and Education Team
Wessex Archaeology are highly experienced in organising and supporting a broad range of community engagement activities. We attracted 800 members of the public to Sherford Community Open Day, a site open day in support of a large commercial development, but are equally at home with talks to societies and small charity groups, such as the Alzheimer’s Society Men’s Group.
We have materials in a range of formats created by our in-house specialists and Graphics Team. Our team will work with you to put together the package that best suits your needs.
