National Archaeology Week
National Archaeology Week is your unique chance to discover and explore the archaeological heritage of the United Kingdom. During this NINE DAY event, which will run from 12th–20th July, you can take part in excavation open days, hands-on activities, family fun days, guided tours, exhibitions, lectures, ancient art and craft workshops and much, much more.
The aim of this annual event is to encourage everyone, and especially young people and their families to visit sites of archaeological/historical interest or museums, heritage and resource centres, to see archaeology in action and to take part in activities on-site.
Events are taking place all over England and Wales. there are also a few events in Northern Ireland and one in Scotland.
‘National Archaeology Week is the CBA’s flagship event, a national festival of archaeology with numerous events … which showcase the best of British archaeology and allow everyone to see archaeology in action‘. Mike Heyworth, Director, CBA
