Archaeology and Classics in the Community

Roman rat cartoon v2Our Outreach and Widening Participation projects are underpinned by a passionate belief in the importance of promoting our research in the fields of Archaeology and Classics for the benefit of the widest possible audience.

Student volunteering is recognised on the Higher Education Achievement Report and is accredited by the Leicester Award scheme. Since 2013 our student volunteers have worked with more than 50 local and national organisations and charities. We are currently promoting the study of Latin and classical archaeology in local schools through after-school clubs funded by the national charity Classics for All. Our archaeology outreach for 2017 is focused on Bradgate Park.

If you would like further information about the excavations and outreach activities at Bradgate Park or our Classics in schools project, please contact us at
