We are very happy to say that although booking has only been open for a few weeks, we are already more than 50% booked. There is still plenty of space left but some weeks are beginning to look quite full, so if you are thinking of joining us this summer then do drop us a line soon if you are not flexible in the weeks that you can join us.
This summer the excavation runs from June 17th – July 20th. We will be excavating in the West Ward of Bamburgh Castle on early medieval layers and we are offering two programmes:
Excavation and Post-Excavation and
book anywhere from one to five weeks. However, we recommend booking two weeks minimum for a well rounded experience. Our dates are listed below:
- Week 1: June 17th- June 23rd
- Week 2: June 24th- June 30th
- Week 3: July 1st- July 7th (waiting list only)
- Week 4: July 8th- July 14th (waiting list only)
- Week 5: July 15th- July 20th (waiting list only)
Tuition is £275 per week, which will cover all on-site excavation and post-excavation activities. You can learn more about what this covers by visiting our website.
Accommodation must be booked separately. There are many options for accommodation in the area to suit every budget and we are happy to offer suggestions. However, we do encourage all participants to stay in close proximity to BRP staff, as this allows staff and students the opportunity to get to know one another in a social setting and there are friendly faces around should you need a helping hand. This year our staff will be staying at Budle Bay Campsite
Note: There have been several changes to the field school such as our training schedule and when you are expected to arrive. Even if you have booked in years past we encourage you to read-through the updated website pages.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
