The Brighton and Hove Archaeological Society Field Unit is a group of people dedicated to the research and investigation of archaeological sites around the Brighton and Hove area and along the South Downs.

The unit conduct research programmes of surveying, field walking and geophysical studies looking for new sites. Limited excavations of sites, at week-ends only, allow participation in all aspects of archaeological investigation.

The training in the techniques undertaken in the correct and accurate recording of archaeological sites is part of the educational programme promoted by the Society. Finds processing, including washing, marking and the cataloguing of finds are enhanced by educational day schools in the identification of archaeological artifacts.
