ARCHAEOLOGY ON FURLOUGH

ONLINE VOLUNTEER PROJECTS IN THE TIME OF COVID-19

COVID-19 DOESN'T MEAN ARCHAEOLOGY HAS TO STOP

ARCHAEOLOGY ON FURLOUGH

The coronavirus pandemic means many archaeologists in Britain are not working. Some are on furlough. Some have lost their jobs. Some are self isolating. But many still want to be doing archaeology while they are at home. 

Archaeology on Furlough provides professional archaeologists with access to volunteer projects that can be done from home. The idea of these projects is to pull together archaeological evidence generated on individual excavations and do some initial synthesis. They will also databases and gazetteers which will be useful in the future.

 

Because no one knows how many weeks the U.K. will remain in lock-down, all of these projects are designed to be completed in 2–3 weeks with a team of 5–10. All you will need to participate is a computer, internet access, and basic software.  

 

If you volunteer, you will be named as a contributor on all the published results. You may also be able to claim your time as Continuing Professional Development if you are a member of CIfA, BABAO or other professional bodies.
