At Wessex Archaeology, we employ more than 350 staff across a diverse range of heritage and STEM specialisms, from field archaeologists and marine geophysicists to researchers and Studio creatives.

Our staff work on projects all around the world, uncovering the past and meeting our charitable aim: to promote the education of the public in the arts, science, heritage, and culture using archaeology.

Have you and you students ever wondered:

  • What is Archaeology?
  • How does Archaeology thrive as a modern industry?
  • I don’t want to dig; can I still be an Archaeologist?

Discover the answers to these questions, and more, as you’ll hear it first-hand from Wessex Archaeology employees working on fascinating projects to tell you what they love about the industry and how they got into it.

EDUCATORS: Ahead of this workshop, encourage students to think about the importance of archaeology and any parts of history they would like to explore through finding artifacts from the past… Please bring any ideas, or specific questions, to share with the team at Wessex Archaeology! Post these in the classroom!
