Collection Volunteers Day Out 2012

At the Roman Baths Museum we have a wide variety of people behind the scenes volunteering with us. We have students studying or wanting to study archaeology, history or classics; people who are looking to expand or improve their CVs and those simply dedicated to improving the archaeological record and access to collections.

Just a few of our dedicated team of volunteers/interns and placements
Our team of volunteers dedicate many hours to helping us improve museum records through documentation and research, each come with their own skills and learning objectives to work towards. Together we work to ensure better public access and interpretation of the Roman Baths collections, and in return for their hard work we offer them an invaluable experience in a very busy, vibrant work environment.

Working with Combe Down Stone Mine material
In recent times, our volunteer team has helped to process and move archaeological material relating to projects such as the Keynsham Town Hall Redevelopment and the Combe Down Stone Mine Project. They have been out in the field in Bathwick helping the archaeologist process material from one of the most exciting digs in Bath in the last 10 years. Currently, they are working towards the creation of our Festival of British Archaeology event at Chew Magna on Saturday 14th July, and the Tuesday Timetables that start on Tuesday 24th July.

As a big thank you for all of their hard work, we reward them with an annual outing; this year we visited Corinium Museum in Cirencester and Chedworth Roman Villa. It was a lovely day (fortunately the rain held off) and good fun was had by all.
