Based in Nottinghamshire / Derbyshire, MBArchaeology offers educational talks, walks, workshops and courses on a whole variety of archaeological topics in both Community and Family Learning, Adult Education and with specialist groups.

Some of the projects we have been involved with in 2011/12 include Community Archaeology research projects at Scarcliffe Park, Whitwell Woods and Elmton in Derbyshire, Southwell in Nottinghamshire, and Pleasley Vale on the Derbyshire / Nottinghamshire border, a Family Learning archaeology programme in north-east Derbyshire, a residential trip to Stonehenge and surrounding landscape, plus numerous field visits to sites as far apart as the Peak District, York and Peterborough.
The MBArchaeology team is young, vibrant and passionate about what we do. Between us, we have over 50 years experience in archaeology, heritage and community engagement & involvement. Coupled with that experience, our passion and drive enables us to work successfully within the community – with us you get a very personal approach.
