Are you interested in the stories, artefacts and heritage that can be found hidden from sight?

We are looking for volunteers to be part of the Enniskillen Dig an archaeological project offering volunteers training in the skills of excavation and the opportunity to be part of part in an exciting community excavation to take place later this year.

Part of the Legacy of Landscape project volunteers are invited to participate in an exciting online training course beginning in August and delivered by the team for the Centre for Archaeology, Queens University Belfast.  This online training course will provide you with the skills and knowledge to then participate in the LELP Enniskillen community dig to be held in the autumn.

Open to everyone the course will explore the archaeological process of everything that happens on an excavation. Including why Archaeologists dig where they do, how they uncover stories from the past and how they record what they find!

This is a truly unique opportunity to learn new skills and be part of an exciting and unique excavation within the town of Enniskillen.  Further information about the Legacy of Landscape project can be  found on the LELP website, or by contacting Heritage Project Manager Hazel Long by emailing
