Festival of Archaeology
The Festival showcases the very best of archaeology, with special events right across the UK, organised and hosted by museums, heritage organisations, national and countryside parks, universities, local societies, and community archaeologists.
Bigger and better for 2019!
The Festival of Archaeology will be taking a year off in 2018 as part of a plan for a bigger and better festival to form part of 75th anniversary of the Council for British Archaeology next year. The Festival of Archaeology has been running for 27 years – from a single day in 1990 to two weeks in 2017. Last year over 1,000 events were put on by 318 organisers across the UK and we want to build on this success for 2019.
