Projects...

As well as the field trips, Archaeology Safaris has ongoing field work projects and also collaborates with other Archaeology projects, details of each one are as follows:

 

The Anglesey Rock-Art Project
More details...

The Anglesey Rock-Art Project (ARAP) began with a field trip in June 2004 with part-time students from Bristol University and our discovery on the first day of cup-marks on a rock outcrop within 250m of the Bryn Celli Ddu passage-grave. So quite a significant discovery and we have returned on field work trips since and found more at other sites such as Cromlech Farm on the North of the island.

Northumberland and Durham Rock Art Project


What is the Rock Art Project?

Nationally, rock art remains one of the more neglected aspects of British archaeology. In 2000, the Rock Art Pilot Project (RAPP) report, commissioned by English Heritage, concluded that not only is British rock art undervalued and understudied, it is also is under considerable threat and may be disappearing at an alarming rate. This report stressed the urgent need for systematic documentation of the engravings across Britain as a crucial first step towards improving protection, access and understanding.

The Rock Art Project is a two year pilot project based in Northumberland and Durham which will build on the extensive work already completed in Northumberland. If you would like to join Archaeology Safaris as a volunteer to help in the search for Rock Art and other Archaeology sites over weekend field exercises, then please contact us
