About

Southwell Archaeology was formed in 2008 and is a Registered Charity. We play a prominent practical role in exploring the very special archaeological nature of Southwell in the context of the wider landscape of Nottinghamshire.

 We are engaged in practical community archaeology activities including excavation, field survey and standing-buildings recording. We work in partnership with many organizations including the University of Nottingham, the University of Leicester, Nottingham Trent University, Historic England, Trent and Peak Archaeology, as well as Southwell Town Council, the Southwell Civic Society and the Southwell Heritage Trust.

We draw on a range of internationally recognised specialists to advise and teach us on many of the finds that we make.

 Membership is open to all, irrespective of background or experience. The only requirement is an interest in the past!
