Prices include a workshop for up to 40 students, initial consultation (including any face-to-face meetings), all resources, lesson plans and risk assessments within a twenty mile radius of Buxton, Derbyshire, including the whole of the Peak District National Park. After this distance, I will charge 45p per mile travelled. For numbers greater than 40, I will bring another experienced archaeologist with me, to ensure learning is not compromised. There will be an additional cost for this (usually half the cost of the workshop again). Discounts are also available. Please contact me for further details.
