Volunteer at the Knowe of Swandro 

Sadly due to the difficulties surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic we have been forced to cancel the 2021 excavation. We will be back on site in 2022 and information about volunteering and our application form will be posted here in due course, hopefully by December 2021. Please do not contact us ahead of time as we cannot keep applications on file. In the meantime our information for volunteers may be downloaded below, this will be unchanged for 2022 and will give you an idea of what to expect, in particular you may wish to investigate the logistics involved in volunteering.  

We do not charge volunteers to attend the excavation but  donations are welcome
