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.
