Work experience

Historians, archaeologists and heritage professionals all have to start somewhere!

In order to give our colleagues of the future a helping hand we offer exciting 1 and 2-week placements to students from Lincolnshire schools and colleges who are considering a career in heritage or archaeology.

In a typical week you might go on an archaeological dig, help with our after school club, be involved in planning or delivering events, visits to our historic sites, archiving, marketing, social media, visitor interpretation, and more!

Places are limited and should be arranged via your institution’s careers service. You can also contact us for more information.

Visit our schools page for more information on how we can bring local history to life for your students.
