Many opportunities exist for students to become involved as volunteers on a range of archaeological projects. Some of these projects are research-based and conducted by members of the Department of Archaeology, others are outside projects conducted by professional consultant archaeologists or heritage authorities. To become involved as a volunteer join the Flinders Archaeological Society, or the Society for Underwater Historical Research, subscribe to the FUAD list, or keep checking this web page.
Sometimes opportunities for volunteer archaeological fieldwork are available with other organisations. For wider heritage volunteering opportunities, you will have to look more broadly. Download our helpful suggestions here: (PDF 66KB)
Volunteer experience in archaeology and heritage can be credited towards your undergraduate degree. Purchase a log book from the Professional and Postgraduate Services office (Room H211 Humanities Building) and start recording the volunteer work you undertake.
