Archaeology Action Groups
The establishment and development of local Archaeology Action Groups (AAGs) formed the heart of the Jigsaw project and continue to provide the long term legacy of the project. Jigsaw supported volunteers in setting up eight new AAGs across the county, providing them with the skills needed to investigate their local heritage and discover more about the past beneath their feet.

Affiliated Groups
The Jigsaw project aimed to not only develop, train and support new groups. Existing local societies and groups interested in their heritage also became affiliated to Jigsaw to gain access to the expertise of the Jigsaw Project Team and specialist archaeological equipment.

Jigsaw continues to accept applications from existing groups for affiliation. Please download our Conditions of Affiliation and Application Form and send completed forms to us. If you have any questions, please contact us.

We provided opportunities for individuals to also become involved in Jigsaw and meet other like-minded people intereseted in archaeology and the past. Oxford Archaeology East welcomes expressions of interest in volunteering at our office in Bar Hill and on our commercial fieldwork sites in the Eastern region.
