Surrey County Archaeological Unit work all over the county but are based in the Surrey History Centre in Woking.

The Community Archaeology Team aims to make archaeology accessible to the public through providing a wide range of services. These include working with schools and colleges - both in school delivering talks and workshops and out on site, offering family learning activities and representing Surrey Heritage at historical events and open days. In addition we offer a range of volunteering projects and training opportunities.

One of our most important responsibilities is to work with local communities to organise archaeology projects, from research groups to community excavations. These projects give the people of Surrey the chance to learn archaeological skills whilst uncovering the history of their local area.
