About Archaeology-Insurance.co.uk

Having always thought that I would spend my working life in the Archaeology / Heritage sector, I was disappointed when what I considered viable career options didn’t open up for me on the completion of my Doctorate. However, I had a plan: work on the ‘other side’ in business for 10 years, get rich and then return to Archaeology on my own terms! Well, that didn't happen. What I should have done was set up a tools supply operation, like my friend Diarmaid of Archtools – and mix the two worlds.

Anyway, I didn’t and I found myself eventually selling business insurance – and after a few days, I realised that this is where I can mix the two worlds! Insurance for Archaeologists by Archaeologists! Most insurance brokers and insurers have no idea what Archaeologists do – "is that the same as groundworkers or farmers?" "No, we don't insure gardeners." "Oh, architects, we don' t insure them either." "ARCHAEOLOGISTS!!!!"

We have now added travel insurance to our suite of bespoke insurances for Archaeologists. We have teamed up with nowicantravel.co.uk who have included ‘manual labour’ as standard in all of their policies. This means that you are covered for all types of field-work, including excavation.

Whether you are going an 18 month world tour and find yourself joining an excavation in Peru or you are travelling to France for a week for a field project – you will be fully insured!

We also have policies for archaeological tours and for those who may have pre-existing medical conditions and often find it difficult to get insurance.
