Ask the Archaeologist


We usually offer a range of placement opportunities offering short-term involvement and experience in The JORVIK Group over our busy February, Easter summer and autumn periods.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions we are currently unable to host or take bookings for placements at our attractions or archaeological units. We will update these pages with further information on future opportunities as soon as possible.

If you’d like to be the first to hear about the latest placement opportunities, we recommend signing up for our placements mailing list. You can also find out more information about our volunteer and placement programme by downloading a copy of frequently asked questions here.
