PASt Explorers Conference 2019

A selection of finds recorded by PASt Explorers volunteers.

This year is the final year of the PASt Explorers project. Generously supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, the PASt Explorers project has, for the last 5 years, championed finds recording in the local community. By providing opportunity, training and support, we have involved hundreds of volunteers in communities across England and Wales in the archaeology of their local area, recording finds and sharing the knowledge to help shape our understanding of the past.

Join us to celebrate the work of the PASt Explorers project, supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, with a series of talks looking at what the project has achieved, how this work is being used to inform our knowledge of the past, and the vast potential for future projects.

The conference will be followed by a drinks reception with stand-up comedy from Paul Duncan McGarrity, the man behind the brilliant Ask An Archaeologist podcast series.

The conference is taking place at The British Museum on Friday 21st June 2019. It is free to attend but booking is essential. To book a place please visit: or call 0207 323 8293. The conference is fully catered and PAS volunteers may claim their travel expenses back, subject to our expenses policy (please contact us for details).

We look forward to seeing you in June!
