Why ‘in-school’ archaeology workshops?
Archaeology is a link through so many ways to the National Curriculum at all Key Stages. Yes that’s right – it is a resource that is highly relevant across many subjects, and not just History, as you might imagine. Archaeology even has relevance for EYFS.
Our collective experience as archaeologists and educators means we have an in-depth understanding of teaching young people about archaeology. The archaeological process can seem a daunting task. Our workshops help them to realise how we create knowledge about the past in the present. Take the time to look through our site and you will see just how we can help you.
In the meantime, we’ll briefly introduce you to some of the things we do:
- develop and deliver archaeology workshops for schools.
- research information for all our workshops.
- actively seek feedback on our work.
- create resources including activity handouts, information sheets and teacher-packs.
- source handling objects.
- teach GCSE Classical Civilisation and Ancient History, and AS/A level Archaeology in schools and on a 1-1 basis.
- develop and deliver CPD courses for teachers.
- organise, manage and lead outreach to local schools and communities for archaeological projects such as the Arbor Low Environs Project and Peeling Back The Layers.

Where do we work?
We are based in the Peak District. This gives Enrichment Through Archaeology a central base from which to provide archaeology workshops for schools from Stockton-on-Tees in the north to Reigate in the south.

What do clients say?
In the meantime, just read what one happy client has said …
“I was struck by your outstanding level of preparation: the resources were superb; the day was very well pitched, structured and timed; everything was beautifully tailored to the work the students are already doing … I cannot thank you enough for the support you have given us in the delivery of our scheme of work, and for creating the perfect marriage of fun and learning which is the perpetual yet elusive goal of teachers everywhere!”
Anna Jordan, Head of History, Derby High School
