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. All volunteers need to participate is a computer, internet access, and basic software. These projects are pulling together archaeological evidence generated on individual excavations and analysing the material. The project teams are also building databases and gazetteers which will be useful in the future.

 

Some of the projects have now wrapped up: their findings are on the Reports and Data page. Others are still ongoing, with project teams planning to publish their results in archaeological journals. 

 

Everyone who volunteers is 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.
