Dig It!

Explore the role of Archaeology in finding out about the past as you unearth real and replica Roman and prehistory objects in our mock excavation pits as part of your day. Discover what these findings tell us about lives in the past.

Anglo Saxon topic? Talk to us about our option of children unearthing burial goods and a skeleton! The day can also include a further hands-on dying workshop with natural material.
