Festival of Archaeology - Family Fun Day!

Tues 19th July

11am to 3pm


Calling all budding archaeologists (or those that just love digging and making things)

An archaeologist wouldn’t be able to do their job without the tools of their trade, so let us help you create your own make your own archaeologist kit including a hard hat, trowel and ID lanyard so that you can have a go at digging in our sand pits. You never know what treasures you may find!

Create clay pots, just like the ones on display in the museum and have a go at our medieval games and puzzles and dressing up

There will be an archaeological ‘finds’ trail to follow too.

£3 drop-in activity
