You will have been reading for months about the amazing experiences that the wonderful team of volunteers have been having building the Neolithic Houses.
It is now your chance to get involved as we are looking for friendly, welcoming and enthusiastic volunteers to help visitors to Stonehenge understand and experience the Neolithic houses.
As an Interpretation Volunteer you will be responsible for maintaining the houses, lighting fires, explaining the replica objects and assisting with the building maintenance. You will be bringing the stories of the Neolithic people to life and providing a warm and friendly welcome for all visitors.
There are a variety of tasks you can get involved with and the role is flexible, so whatever your skills, knowledge or experience there is something for everyone.
Ideally, we would like you to commit to a minimum of one four hour shift per week, in either the morning or afternoon. However, we are flexible and can accommodate other requests.
The role would suit people who are friendly and welcoming, flexible and keen to learn, excellent communicators, keen to share their passion for Stonehenge and interested in new learning opportunities and gaining new skills and experiences.
What our Neolithic Houses builders say about volunteering:
“DO IT! You meet such a diverse group of interesting people, both other volunteers and visitors, and learn more about the extensive history of the area.” Rob
“Volunteering is great fun and gives you chances in life that you would otherwise never experience.” Rosemary and Nick
“Try it! If you …would like the opportunity to meet some of the most interesting people on this planet. I have spoken to people from all around the world and from all walks of life and they all have a different story to tell but they all have one thing in common – a need to visit Stonehenge and experience a unique part of British history. The houses will bring Neolithic history to life and give a more sensory experience to all and you will make life long friends to boot.” Wendy
“Volunteering at Stonehenge is very rewarding especially when working with groups of children who always respond with enthusiasm.” Kathy
“I was very nervous before we started the prototype build at Old Sarum. I hadn’t done any building work before and I was worried that I would be slow and hopeless. I also worried that I wouldn’t be able to manage being outside in the cold all day. I didn’t need to worry – I have been taught the skills I need on the way and I found I loved being outside all day. It has been a fabulous experience.” Alyson
