The Festival of Archaeology is coordinated by the Council for British Archaeology & showcases the very best of archaeology for everyone.
This year our theme is archaeology, science and technology or #ArchaeoTech
- Explore the local archaeology of your area, watch experts at work, & experience the excitement of archaeology on a dig.
- Enjoy farm & woodland-themed activities, talks & tours on the latest discoveries and expert-led walks.
- Experience life in the past with living history, warfare demonstrations, food tasting & mosaic making.
- Learn about the technology behind archaeology & have a go at geophysical & topographic surveys, or take part in mini-excavations.
