CBA Festival of Archaeology 2021

Festival of Archaeology 17 July - 1 August

Exploring Local Places is the theme for this year’s CBA Festival of Archaeology which takes place across the UK from 17 July to 1 August. With over 300 live online and in person events to choose from there are plenty of opportunities to discover the archaeology and heritage that is all around you. This year we are encouraging you to head out and explore your local places, to discover stories, sites, buildings, places, people and events that make our local communities so special.  

Alongside our live events this year we have created a brand new resources area on the Festival website which has a whole range of activities you can access all year round. With over 170 resources we have everything from recorded talks and podcasts for you to enjoy from the comfort of home to craft activities for all ages to enjoy and plenty of self-guided walks to help you continue exploring local places long after Festival fortnight has ended.
