CLASP brings local archaeology enthusiasts together to investigate their local past.
Our members, all volunteers, are technically led by our professionally qualified Archaeological Director, himself a volunteer. Members are encouraged and enabled to learn skills for themselves, both formally and ‘in the field’, to become confident and self-sufficient in all aspects of archaeological investigation.
CLASP also provides talks and lectures as part of its commitment to encouraging local communities to ‘own’ their archaeological heritage.
