Archaeological fieldwork throughout Leicestershire

Fieldwork Guides

Working with University of Leicester Archaeological Services, the Leicestershire Fieldworkers have produced a number of fieldwork guides to aid community archaeology groups across the county and beyond. All our guides are free to download and use without copyright.  They are all pdfs and will each open in a new tab.   If you have comments on these or know of other guides that you would find useful please let us know via our Contact Us page and we’ll see what we can do.

PLEASE NOTE: This page is currently a work in progress, we hope you will bear with us while we update the content.
