CLASP brings local archaeology enthusiasts together to investigate their local past.
Professional archaeologists lead the activities and contribute specialist skills when necessary – but the ‘amateurs’ are encouraged and enabled to learn skills for themselves and become self-sufficient in many aspects of archaeological investigation.
CLASP also provides talks and lectures as part of its commitment to encouraging local communities to ‘own’ their archaeological heritage.
