The CBA Festival of Archaeology is back for its 29th year in 2020 offering hundreds more opportunities to get involved in archaeology across the UK.

This years Festival will be slightly different to the way we have run it in the past, due to the current Coronavirus situation.


From 11th to 19th July we will be running a digital Festival, with programme of online events for people to take part in.

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.
