Hey guys, I believe that I saw a thread thats a few years old in another sub-forum that mentions this, but I didn't really find anything since it's from 2011..

Could anyone recommend a site that I could go to and view overseas (I'm in the US) archaeological digging/etc opportunities in Europe, particularly the British Isles, for a decent price?

PLEASE!

Thanks.

Overseas.
Sorry. Had to.
Try looking at university programs in archaeology. Call them and ask.

Well, you could try going overseas.

Seriously though are there not some exciting digs going on locally,
archive.archaeology.org...

en.wikipedia.org...:Archaeological_sites_on_the_National_Register_of_Historic_Places_in_New_York

There is a dig in the middle of Dublin ongoing, and I think in London new discoveries.

I'm not a student, that's the thing, even though I do have a degree in history (not sure if that matters). I don't want to go on a dig here, haha, I really want to go over to Europe, particularly the British Isles.. Is there a site or an organization that I can look up/search that does this for a lower cost?

Try the Council for British Archeology site, they have a lot of info on volunteering at digs all over Britain

www.archaeologyuk.org...

This is pretty directional,
culturaltourismireland.ie...

If you explore the site, they look for diggers as well, and training is given.

Might try university of cambridge in uk they often have digs going on as part of their curriculum .. or get a copy of archaology magazine they used to cover digs worldwide ..

Unless its a scheduled monument or similarly listed area theres not much paperwork that needs to be submitted and most of it will be directly person to person, but you'd probably be better off if you are more subjective on your site choices as digging up a 1850's pot bank will require a totally different understanding than a 500bc graveyard and most uni's normally have atleast some sort of special field
