Tiverton Archaeology Group

Welcome to the

Tiverton Archaeology Group .

We are a small but well-established amateur Archaeology group operating in the Tiverton area of Devon. We might be small…but we are very active and have members ranging from professional local Archaeologists to keen armchair enthusiasts. We are always open to new members. Everyone who joins our group is welcome to do as little or as much as they want. Some just enjoy coming to listen to our monthly talks, others also undertake fieldwork and excavation and/or join the club committee. You definitely don’t need to be super fit to join our group!

Our area of interest is by no means limited to Tiverton. Monthly talks (presented by experienced Archaeologists) can be about Archaeological research or excavation happening locally, regionally or worldwide. For fieldwork, we benefit from our mid Devon location. Members have been involved in the Exmoor Iron Project for the last four years and we currently have members volunteering on the Princesshay excavations in Exeter city centre.

This website is still very much under development. We hope to bring you more information about the projects we have been involved in and our members very soon. In the meantime, please email any questions to Feel free to come along to one of our meetings…no previous archaeological experience is necessary. Look out for our posters advertising upcoming meetings. We meet every third Thursday of the month at Heathcoat’s Community Hall (81 King Steet, Tiverton). Meetings begin at 7.30pm. Occasional visit fee is £1 and there are discounts for family and student memberships. We look forward to seeing you soon!
