About

Formed in November 2013, Stour Valley Community Archaeology aims to provide opportunities for community archaeology fieldwork projects in the Stour Valley along the Suffolk/Essex border. Inspired by three years of community archaeology with the HLF-funded Managing A Masterpiece project supported by Access Cambridge Archaeology, membership to SVCA is open to people of all ages and abilities; no previous archaeological experience necessary, just a desire to discover, research and enjoy the fascinating archaeology of this beautiful landscape.

One of the many ongoing projects undertaken by SVCA is the recording of medieval graffiti in the churches of Stour Valley. We have a separate blog detailing this survey, which can be found here: http://www.svcagraffiti.blogspot.com

  1. Hi
    My husband and I will be travelling from Australia to the UK in July 2017 and are extremely keen to participate in a dig. If you able to provide any information that may help us achieve our dream we would be very grateful.

    1. How exciting and sorry that I didn’t pick up on your message sooner. I will email you a membership form so you can dig with us. You will need to be a member for insurance purposes.

      Looking forward to seeing you next year.
