Community Archaeology Hub

Meerstone Archaeological Consultancy have developed a commitment to community archaeology.

These pages set out the services that we can offer to community based history and heritage projects.

We define community archaeology as:
  • Archaeological research carried out by, and for, local communities, either with or without the support of professionals. 
  • We strongly believe that archaeology can involve everyone irrespective of experience, skills, knowledge, education or social background. 
  • We also believe that well designed community projects can reach far beyond local interest and can address important academic questions. 
  • We aim to empower and equip community groups with the skills and facilities to make significant contributions to the archaeological record.

We will have published the Meerstone Community Archaeology Manual to bring together all our experience and methodologies in a unique open content document.
