Archaeology Insurance

We understand that archaeology is more than just the dig, which is why we work with a panel of insurance companies to build tailored insurance packages in order to get the right cover at the best price.

By understanding what Archaeologists do, we can help you manage your business risk.

Why do I need Archaeology Insurance?

The dig itself is a low-risk activity but due to the importance of the finds, the need to keep the site, the team, and the equipment required to support the dig safe, it is highly recommended that any team undertaking an archaeological dig take out suitable insurance cover to protect the team and any equipment as well as members of the public or their property.

E&Gs Business Insurance for Archaeologist and Historical Societies will ensure that you, your team, and the artefacts found, preserved and displayed will be protected from events such as theft, flood, malicious damage right from the start. Whether you are digging, surveying, conserving, monitoring, displaying or researching, Archaeology Insurance is a vital component of your business.
