Talks and Lectures

At Wessex Archaeology we are happy to offer talks and lectures to groups and societies. We can cater for any audience and have worked with archaeological societies, the WI, U3A and community interest groups.

Our talks fall into two categories:

  • What We Do’ talks that illustrate the broad variety of activities we undertake. This includes Coastal & Marine archaeology, Geophysics, field archaeology, research, and life in an archaeological organisation.
  • What We Find’ talks focus more closely on specific sites or periods of history which we can often tailor to specific local sites.

The standard fee for our talks is £50.



We aim to offer a range of volunteering opportunities to enable people to experience archaeology and discover their heritage first hand. Regular volunteering sessions are held at our head office in Salisbury, which usually involve post-excavation processing training and activities. Other opportunities, including fieldwork are offered around the country whenever possible. To find out more about current opportunities please use the contact form below.
