The Brighton and Hove Archaeological Society is open to all whatever their experience. You will need to be a member to participate, which is £20 full or £10 student, and are advised to have a current tetanus. You can join via the website www.brightonarch or come along to an event and fill in an application form, but you please note that you must pay the total membership fee applicable to you, before you are allowed to participate in the excavation/activities.

The BHAS have been excavating at Rocky Clump, Stanmer, near Brighton. The site is a Late Iron Age/Romano-British site. It consists of a very large enclosure and we have found evidence for a grain storage building/granary, a grain storage pit, almost 2 metres deep, and a number of baby burials. There are plenty of finds of pottery, animal bones and flint work. The new digging season begins on Saturday April 4th 2020.


  1. I would like to volunteer with the dig in Ovingdean. I live just over the hill in Rottingdean and I’m retiring in August ’16.
    How do I join the society?
