Archaeology Travel

Exploring our Pasts & Inspiring New Adventures

Archaeology travel has destination and thematic guides to help you create your own tours. Also on offer are unique tours that explore art in archaeology through the ages.

Where can I take you?

Drawing on my professional background in archaeology and art history, ten years in hospitality, as well as my passion for travel, I offer private, bespoke guided archaeology tours. Explore the archaeological and artistic splendours of France or Roman Britain. From Ice Age cave art of France and Spain to some of the finest Roman villas and their spectacular mosaic floors, as well as such iconic sites as Roman Bath and Hadrian’s Wall with their rich sculptural traditions. Or join me on a once in a lifetime trip to Greece to see how Byzantine art is all but a thing of the past there.

I was talking about you today telling a friend what a great trip I had to France. Just wanted you to know again that it was truly memorable and I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Great memories and also for me exposure to history I knew little about. Thanks again sharing your knowledge and putting together a wonderful itinerary.
