An environmental charity wants “volunteers” for an archaeological expedition.

Earthwatch has been mapping an excavation site for more than a decade in South Shields, UK and as a volunteer you will help archaeologists excavate the Roman fort of Arbeia to better understand how ancient Romans and Europeans came into contact with each other.

The South Shields Roman Fort is the site of a Roman military and civilian settlement and lies within the UNESCO Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site.

The Tyne expedition in June, July or August 2010, lasts from seven to 14 days and costs from £695 to £1,095.
