RESCUE – The British Archaeological Trust is an independent non-political charitable trust dedicated to supporting archaeology and the historic environment in Britain and abroad.
As a charitable trust we do not receive any state support. We are entirely reliant on the contributions of our members to support our work as advocates of the historic environment, at a time of unprecedented threat. Members receive RESCUE News three times a year, details of meetings and conferences and discounted prices on our publications. Find out more about what we do with this money.
Our 2016 AGM will be at 11.30am on 23rd April at the Ashmolean Museum. At 2pm, Dr. Gill Hey will be talking about Austerity and Archaeology – all welcome [read more here].
