Published 08 March 2010

A project at University of East Anglia is looking for volunteers for the next season of fieldwork in Western Sahara.

"We will be running a 3-week season of reconnaissance survey work from around 5-27 November 2010. We are also hoping to run a season of excavations from approximately 1 October - 13 November 2010, subject to the availability of external funding.

We are looking for volunteers for both of these components. If the excavations go ahead we will be seeking two sets of volunteers for this element, to participate in two consecutive 3-week excavation modules.", writes the project's co-director Nick Brooks.

More information is available on the recently updated volunteers page of the project website at:
