The primary aim of Access Cambridge Archaeology is to enhance educational, economic and social well-being through active participation in archaeology.

Access Cambridge Archaeology (ACA) offers a range of exciting and inspirational activities aimed at school students which use new knowledge, ideas and approaches from the multidisciplinary subject of archaeology to raise educational achievement and aspirations in practical hands-on activities.

ACA also helps to develop and run a wide range of heritage-related activities in, for and with local communities, including field-walking, test-pit digging and larger excavations.
