Big Digs

For the last few years, Wyre Archaeology have organised a "big dig". This normally consists of 3 (or more) days of intensive digging by as members as possible. Depending upon the weather this has normally taken place between April and October. On several occasions we have been ably assisted by students from Blackpool Sixth Form College who find it useful when it comes to writing a personal statement - especially if they are applying for Archaeology courses. If any members (or even non-members) have any ideas for any "big digs" please email the webmaster on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We offer basic training and can provide basic kit for digs. We have a full Health & Safety Policy and Procedures Guide and Risk Assess our sites before excavation. We also carry full insurance for all digs.
