Sedgeford Archaeological and Historical Research Project, UK

Y. Bolton-Smith

1 July-10 August; Sedgeford, Norfolk


SHARP (the Sedgeford Historical and Archaeological Research Project) is a long-term, independently-run archaeological project. Our primary objective is the investigation of the entire range of human settlement and land use in the north-west Norfolk parish of Sedgeford. So far we have investigated sites from the Mesolithic to the First World War, and are currently focusing on the Middle Anglo-Saxon period.


Established in 1996, SHARP is one of the largest independent archaeological projects in Britain and is firmly rooted in the local community. We welcome people of all ages and abilities, from 16-year-olds taking their first steps in archaeology, to students to retirees and interested amateurs.


We have a range of courses and volunteer opportunities (not all of which involve digging!). If you have at least 3 weeks digging experience you can join us in the trench. If not, why not sign up for our Basic Excavation and Recording Techniques where we will teach you all you need to know. You’ll spend half your time on trench and will get your trowel dirty right from the start!

You are welcome to join us for a minimum of 6 days – or you can spend the whole of our six-week season with us. A limited number of grants are available - please see website for details
