The committee have been getting adjusted to their new roles and would like to thank all the new volunteers who helped make this semester a success. We would also like to say a big thank you to all the school and organisations who invited us along – we had a lot of fun volunteering and sharing our love of archaeology with you all! We are already starting to plan new events and activities for next year. This includes a community wide archaeology event where people from all age groups to come and learn about various aspects of archaeology in one place- more news will follow once we get organised!

In the new year, we are looking for more groups to visit so if you are, or know anyone, interested then send us an email to eaoproject@gmail.com and we will be happy to arrange a visit 🙂 In the meantime, we wish everyone an early Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

A New Year for EAOP!

It is the start of another academic year and this means that EAOP is back up a running with the new committee busy getting organised for another fun-filled year! We started the year at The University of Edinburgh’s Fresher’s Week Societies Fair where we got a largely positive response and hopefully a lot of new members!

In the meantime, if you would like to become a volunteer with us or would like us to visit your school/community group/project etc then email us at EAOProject@gmail.com. We look forward to hearing from you and to another great year!
