Archaeology students and interested members of the public alike can take part in Worthing Archaeological Society’s many fieldwork opportunities, including surveying, field-walking, finds processing and small-scale excavation and recording. The society runs a programme of lectures from October to April and summer visits by coach to various archaeological sites of interest. They are engaged year round with activities put on by the National Trust and English Heritage in various locations throughout West Sussex.
The society offers in-house training and open days from their base in the Worthing Museum, as part of their aim to promote and support members’ own investigations into archaeological and historic projects. They have a Resistivity meter, a Total Station and and full surveying equipment and conduct a major on-going two week excavation in August-September each year. Many local history groups are affiliated with the Society, and work with them on various local projects within their areas of interest.
They also publish a regular newsletter.
