Established in 1996, SHARP is one of the largest independent archaeological projects in Britain and is firmly rooted in the local community. SHARP’s primary objective is the investigation of human settlement and land use in the north-west Norfolk parish of Sedgeford. The 2023 season will continue excavations of a series of Anglo-Saxon malting buildings (see CA 379). New malting kilns were identified last season, and this year the project aims to investigate more.
Anyone with an interest in archaeology and the past is welcome, with or without previous archaeological experience.
Participants aged 15 yrs and above are welcome to take part in the excavation. Under 16s will need to be accompanied by an adult onsite. Camping is available onsite with all facilities provided.
Extra courses: Basic Excavation and Recording Techniques (BERT) course, Introduction to Human Skeletal Remains course (off-site), Human Remains volunteer, Dig for a Day, Festival of Archaeology (23 July 2023).
Onsite courses: £480 onsite volunteer, £300 offsite volunteer, £150 (concessionary rates for students and the unwaged; bursary funding available for one full place each year).
