Festival of Archaeology - Saturday 16 July - Sunday 31 July 2016

The Festival of Archaeology - coordinated by the Council for British Archaeology (CBA) - encourages everyone to explore the archaeology of their local area, watch experts at work, and experience archaeology for themselves.

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.

Over 1000 events take place across the UK each year to give everyone the chance to experience our unique archaeological heritage for themselves. Read more on the Festival website
