We are delighted to announce that booking details are now available for our 2019 field school season, which runs from June 16th – July 27th. The field school will operate out of Bamburgh Castle and we are offering two programmes:
Excavation and Post-Excavation or Post-Excavation only
You can book anywhere from one to six weeks. However, we recommend booking two weeks minimum for a well rounded experience. Our dates are listed below:
- Week 1: June 16th- June 22nd
- Week 2: June 23rd- June 29th
- Week 3: June 30th- July 6th
- Week 4: July 7th- July 13th
- Week 5: July 14th- July 21st
- Week 6: July 22nd- July 27th
Student spaces are limited, so we encourage you to book your place as soon as possible.
Tuition is £280 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. The staff are staying at Budle Bay Campsite and we very much encourage you to join us there for a more communal experience. Most who join the dig find making new friends and the social side of the excavation just as much fun as the dig itself. Budle bay offers a variety of options from basic camping to booking your own Eco Hut. Options for space in the Bunkhouse that we are booking for staff are also available but do contact us to ensure that places are still available in it before booking with the campsite.
Note: There were a number of changes last year 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.
