Welcome to the Nene Valley Archaeological Trust - NVAT

The Nene Valley has attracted people to live and do business since the Neolithic. The Nene Valley Archaeological Trust has been helping to discover, document and communicate the history of the area since 1958. 

We bring together professional archaeologists, we support local amateur groups, we lobby government, and we help focus funds and expertise on Nene Valley archaeology.

The NVAT is a charitable trust with strong academic credentials. We have been involved with archaeological excavations and studies of over 40 sites in the area. Please join our network to find out more about our activities and ways in which you can help continue our important work.

Our programme of investigation at Durobrivae was not able to proceed as planned in 2020 but  the report on the exploratory excavation in 2019 is available. Please help our work by making a donation.
