Community Archaeology

CBAS are proud to run community and volunteer programmes wherever possible.

We have had many community excavations in the past where volunteers have participated and learned about the local historic environment first hand.

Please check out our news feed for any opportunities coming up. This may be excavation opportunities or post-excavation work for previous community projects we have worked on.

For further details on our past community projects, please click here.


The Sussex School of Archaeology Limited (SSA) is an established centre providing archaeology courses to the general public and more specialised training courses for amateur and professional archaeologists.

SSA was set up and run by Chris Butler and is managed by Annalie Seaman with David Rudling ​as Academic Director. The course tutors are all specialists, most of whom taught previously at the University of Sussex and are very experienced in their fields, thus providing some of the best archaeological training available and we shall continue to offer these at reasonable fees.

SSA was established in 2013 and offers an extensive series of day schools, evening classes and trips, events and together with practical training courses to suit the interested armchair archaeologist as well as the keen amateur or professional looking to enhance their existing knowledge and skills.

All SSA courses can be valid for Continuous Professional Development for members of the IfA.

For further details of future courses/conferences, please check out the SSA website
