Knole Archaeology Unwrapped

Volunteers undertaking archaeology work at Knole, Kent

Knole is in the midst of a massive conservation and building project, so research, conservation and archaeology are at the forefront of our minds and feature heavily in our current activities.

Each year, we offer archaeology training sessions that allow our volunteers and visitors to try something different, learn new skills and actively contribute to the incredible work that is happening at Knole.

Archaeology Unwrapped is a five-day course, during which volunteers can learn archaeological skills and techniques and more about the development and history of the site. The course is taught by National Trust archaeologist Nathalie Cohen and professional archaeologists from across the UK.

As well as spending time with a friendly group of likeminded people and learning new skills, our volunteers enjoy actively contributing to the conservation work taking place at Knole.

We also host regular lectures on conservation, archaeology and history. Visit our events page to find out more about upcoming lectures.

Our next Knole Archaeology Unwrapped course will take place from 27–31 March 2017. If you have a passion for the past and would like to try something new, why not give it a go!
