Volunteering with PKHT

Through the Trust, you can get involved in a wide range of archaeology and historic buildings projects, from excavations in the hills, to recording medieval chapels in the Carse of Gowrie.

As a volunteer you will learn new skills, meet new people and visit incredible sites in the area that you may not even know exist…you’ll also help to conserve the past for the future!

You don’t have to be super fit either, as we have tasks to suit all…perhaps researching local sites in the records office or online.


"The Glenshee Project has been a fantastic opportunity for local people to join an exciting excavation, to learn a great deal about archaeology, to uncover the past about them and meet some wonderful and interesting people."

Diana MacIntyre, Volunteer from Ladybank, Fife

Get Involved

Volunteering with PKHT is available through our projects. Right now it is the King's Seat Hillfort Archaeology Project which is offering exciting opportunities to actively get involved with the historic environment.

We'd also be interested to hear from you if you think you have skills that could support our Perth City Heritage Fund.

If you'd like to express your interest in volunteering or would like to be notified about future opportunities as they come up then please contact us.

Information for King's Seat will be posted on the project page as it becomes available
