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.

Don't forget to explore our blogs celebrating 75 years of the CBA as well

Watch out for our "A Day in Archaeology" live blogs which will be taking place on 22 July. On 17 July we will be working in partnership with the National Trust on an #askanarchaeologist twitter based event- details coming soon!
