Engagement Resources

Welcome to our public engagement resources page! We also have a page coming soon that will be dedicated to school resources on archaeology.

Professor of Geoarchaeology Karen Milek previously coordinated the creation of a series of short videos on archaeological science, called 'Durham Bioarch Bites'.

There are also a number of videos by our staff members about their research projects, produced by ArchaeoSoup. These can easily be found by searching ArchaeoSoup's YouTube channel.
