The Defence Archaeology Group facilitates Wounded, Injured and Sick servicemen / women from the Armed Forces on Op NIGHTINGALE collaborations. Although independent from the Ministry of Defence, it has well established links with the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (which is the principal archaeology stakeholder for Defence Estates). It has several serving Military personnel, who volunteer and directly support the DAG as Project Co-ordination Officers and Enabling Staff.
Furthermore, the DAG has unique links and direct support from esteemed Archaeologists whom are well established within their professional and academic fields. The DAG can assist and support individuals to link-up with suitable archaeology programs and equally assist existing archaeology groups to find and support military personnel that are wounded, injured or sick (WIS) within their projects.
Although a future aspiration, the DAG currently does not directly support individuals financially, but has the capacity to sign-post them to other charities and assist them through funding processes necessary to enable participation.
