Become a Volunteer

As a registered charity, we rely on our dedicated team of volunteers. They are a vital component of the Sussex Archaeological Society, and without them we would not be able to continue in our mission to preserve the history and heritage of Sussex and provide unique archaeological education opportunities.

We are always happy to welcome new volunteers to our team. By joining, you will be assured a friendly welcome to a community passionate about our shared local history.

Volunteer duties can vary widely: from cataloguing in our extensive library at Barbican House, to cleaning Roman mosaic tiles at Fishbourne Roman Palace. We also offer front-of-house opportunities for those who would enjoy welcoming visitors to our properties, and some behind-the-scenes roles for those who are administratively minded or have particular skills that may be useful to our management.

If you are interested in getting involved, we would love to hear from you. For general enquiries, please contact us at  or call 01273 486 260. If there is a particular property you would like to work at please contact them directly using the details below.
