Welcome to Altogether Archaeology

Tony Metcalfe

The aim of the group is to promote awareness of the archaeological heritage of the North Pennines and the surrounding area; by the involvement of its members of all ages; in archaeological fieldwork and research. We will provide opportunities for members to extend their knowledge of archaeological methods and practice by research, fieldwork and training.

We will be working with professional archaeologists and other partners to develop a fuller understanding of the rich and diverse heritage of the area in which we live and work.

No previous experience is required as training will be given. Archaeological fieldwork is a marvelous way to exercise and meet like minded folk. Our membership ranges far and wide with most members living from North Yorkshire to Northumbria and Cumbria to the east coast. I hope to see you soon.
