The Crickley Hill Archaeological Trust is the charity which oversees the archive and the continuing research work on it. It was formed during the excavation as a means to raise money, safeguard the archive, and manage the excavation itself and the eventual publication of the findings. It is incorporated as a charity in the UK, number 292920. It is also a Limited Company, number 195080. The Registered Office is Rowan House, Barnett Way, Barnwood, Gloucester GL4 3RT. The latest accounts of the Trust can be seen here.

The Trust meets twice a year to formally review progress with the research work, and to consider what steps might be taken to raise funds to complete the work. The Trust welcomes donations from interested people or organisations. If you would like to make a contribution to this work, then please contact use via the Contact link at the top of the page.

The Trustees include representatives of the current owners and managers of the site, The Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust and the National Trust, and from the excavation team itself, to provide continuity over time. The committee of management also has representatives from the UK’s archaeology community, including Historic England, and from the County Council.

The Director of Excavations is Professor Philip Dixon MA D.Phil FSA FRHS, Professor Emeritus of Archaeology at Durham University. He was a Trustee for many years and now attends Trust meetings in his role as Director of Excavations. Sir Henry Elwes KCVO KStJ, former Lord Lieutenant of Gloucestershire, is the Trust’s Patron and also attends Trust meetings.
