Working with the Community
Archaeology on Prescription
Archaeology on Prescription is our award-winning programme which offers a chance for adults aged 18+ who are experiencing mild to moderate mental health difficulties, disability, long-term chronic conditions and loneliness to take part in archaeological and creative activities to improve wellbeing.
Since 2001, York Archaeology has been running training digs (previously known as We Dig or Archaeology Live) offering members of the public a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience of a real archaeological dig. Taking place in York and Nottingham, participants investigate sites that feature deeply stratified, highly complex archaeological deposits in areas of international significance.
