The Canterbury Archaeological Trust was formed in 1975 to undertake excavations, research, publication and the presentation of the results of its work to the public.
We employ a team of highly qualified and experienced field archaeologists and specialists. Funded almost entirely through our commercial activities, research, education and publication are still very much at the heart of what we do.
Key Trust activities
