Dundonald Castle Excavations


September 21, 2019 @ 9:30 am October 4, 2019 @ 4:00 pm


After a successful excavation season at the castle last year, we are going to be carrying out more castle excavations from 21st September-4th October this year!
We are carrying out these excavations with support from Historic Environment Scotland and CFA Archaeology who helped with both the investigations last year and ‘Dig Dundonald 2019’ in May of this year.

However, we need your help! If you are interested in volunteering, we will be running two sessions every day for the duration of the dates mentioned above. The sessions will run from 930am-1230pm and 1pm-4pm/5pm.

No experience is required and we will supply all tools (although if you have your own please feel free to bring them along). It should also be noted that we have other volunteering opportunties, within these digs, that do not require you to do any digging!

If you are interested in volunteering for these excavations, please let Lauren Welsh or Kirsteen Croll by emailing us at archaeology@dundonaldcastle.org.uk and stating what sessions you would be interested in volunteering for.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch!
