Project Review

You’ll help excavate the rural Thai village of Ban Non Wat, a key site for understanding the origins of the Angkor Empire. Under the shade of a tarp, you’ll dig for human burials, food remains, pottery, metals, and other artefacts. You’ll also screen and float sediments to isolate microscopic materials, and will process your finds in the field lab. You’ll work closely with local people and have a chance to truly experience Thai village life. At the end of the work day you’ll be driven back to town to shop at the local market, check your e-mail, take a swim, and enjoy a delicious Thai dinner.

Skills/ Qualifications

No specific skills or qualifications are required. We expect our volunteers to be kind, flexible, friendly and have good communication skills.

Arrangements for Room/Food

You’ll stay at the comfortable Phimai Inn, with a large swimming pool, hot showers, conventional Western plumbing, and air-conditioned rooms. Breakfasts and delicious Thai dinners will be served under the pavilion next to the swimming pool, and the hotel will provide lunches each day to take to the dig site. The hotel is close to Phimai center and there is easy access to the market (including a small supermarket), where you can buy Western favorites.

Any Missing Important Information

Since you are about to volunteer in another country, we ask you to make the necessary preparations before departing. We prefer volunteers to take some small gifts to the local people. Some communities might have high prevalence of viral diseases like malaria or yellow fever, so volunteers need to get vaccinated accordingly.
