Our breaks and courses cater for anyone and everyone who is interested in the past. Scroll down to see the exciting range of activities that are on offer.
They are taught by professional archaeologists and historians who are not only expert in their chosen field but also committed to education and life-long learning. They all enjoy sharing their knowledge and always do so in a friendly and supportive way. Our tutors will always be on hand to provide whatever explanation and guidance you may need. Our courses are always taught in small groups, never more than 16 people.
Most of our Lincoln-based courses are taught in the Lincoln Cathedral Centre, formerly the Old Sub-Deanery. The building has recently undergone a major rebuilding programme to create a purpose built education facility combining the best of modern teaching facilities with the charm of a truly historic building.
Every weekend break begins with a wine reception on the Friday evening, which gives you a chance to meet us and the other people on your course. This is followed by an introductory lecture. We also meet up on the Saturday evening to enjoy dinner in one of Lincoln's fine local restaurants. Accommodation, the wine reception, tea and coffee breaks and the Saturday dinner are all inclusive within the course fee, making your weekend break excellent value for money. Non-participating partners are always welcome and may take part in some aspects of the weekend for little or no additional charge; please contact us for more details.
No previous experience is required to take part in our courses ... you need only bring your enthusiasm!
