This Event is FREE.
Start and end times
10:00am - 4:00pm
To coincide with our People of the Heath exhibition and the national Festival of Archaeology this FREE Saturday brings you all things Archaeology!
1030am-1230pm: Come and have fun with all the family and take part in our hands on activities looking at what it is like to be an archaeologist. From digging up artefacts to drawing them, recording your findings to displaying them in a museum, this fun and interactive morning will have something for everyone.
2pm-330pm: Discover the subject of Experimental Archaeology from our own Experimental Archaeologist before having a go at an experiment yourself! Experimental Archaeology aims to put archaeological theories to the test and find out what life was like in the past through scientific experimentation. It is also a great way to bring the past to life through hands on learning!
