Why the Scout?

Making archaeology accessible

Times are tough, and we want to open doors where we can. We’re on shaky ground ourselves, but we hope this will go some way to making our documentaries more accessible!

Supporting a unique heritage site

Butser Ancient Farm is a small, independent not-for-profit with much bigger ambitions than pockets. Butser Plus helps keep us afloat and let us keep learning!
