Volunteer opportunities at Bradford Kaims

The Bradford Kaims excavation team, part of the the Bamburgh Research Project, are keen to involve the local community and wider Northumberland in our excavation work. We are opening the site to volunteers on Wednesdays and Sundays for the next 6 weeks.

Sun 21st June , Wednesday 24th June are the first two dates and then every Wednesday and Sunday, until Sunday 26th July which will be be our final community day for the season.

Access to the site is limited, as it’s a working farm. The site is located approx 15 min walk from parking. Our facilities are limited to chemical toilets and cold water. It’s basic, but a lot of fun. And the archaeology is excellent. Peat, flint, Neolithic pottery, wetland wood and prehistoric general goodness. What’s not to like!

Volunteers can come for a whole day, or half day, but numbers are limited to 6 on any given day. This will be on a strict first to register an interest basis. Groups are no problem. Anyone wanting to dig who is under 16 needs to be with an accompanying adult.

You will need appropriate clothing, waterproofs, suncream and a packed lunch. We can offer tea and coffee and the occasional biscuit on good days.

Any potential volunteers should contact Paul Gething, the site Director at

gething1966@gmail.com or on 07957 611805.

We really would welcome your help and we may even be able to pass on some of our expertise in exchange.

Hope to see you soon.

Paul Gething
