Archaeology in Lima, Peru, 14 NightsPeru
HIGHLIGHTS: Help discover the secrets of Peru's colourful past at an important archaeological dig site in the nation's vibrant capital Most of Peru's rich history is proudly on show above the ground; towering over your head in the shape of well-preserved colonial architecture or ancient Inca sites perched high on knife-edge cliffs. However, there is even more to be found under our feet and armed with a spade and a keen pair of eyes you could be the first person to see it for hundreds of years. The ceremonial sites of Huaca Huantille1 and Huaca Pucllana are two of Peru's cultural wonders and date back to the 1st and 5th centuries. These projects are attempting to uncover and restore the sites, but lack of funding means volunteers are needed to get busy excavating, cleaning, registering and cataloguing archaeological material, restoring old tapestry/textiles and ceramics and producing material for restoration of ancient walls in order for the work to continue. This is a unique and fulfilling opportunity. View our great airfares, tours, travel insurance, and car hire.

This project works in a small, rural village to help the community generate enough money to keep the elephants well fed and protected; this is achieved through both the fees that the community receive for hosting volunteers.
