The Silchester Field School
The Silchester 2013 excavation season is now over and we are closed to the public. Thank you all for your support this year and we look forward to seeing you all on 7th July 2014.
The next Field School will be from Monday 7 July to Saturday 16 August 2014.
Field School Information
The Silchester Field School takes place every summer for six weeks during which time all first year archaeology students at Reading attend along with external participants from all over the world. The excavation, which investigates Insula IX of one of Britain's most enigmatic Roman cities, has gradually increased in numbers participating year by year since its beginning in 1997.
