Earth Trust is hosting the Archaeology Festival of Discovery on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th February 2024 between 9:30am and 5pm.
When archaeologists from DigVentures began excavating at Earth Trust, it led to the discovery of a previously unknown Roman villa and a vast Iron Age settlement.
The Festival of Discovery sees the archaeologists sharing their fascinating finds in a pop-up museum plus a series of specialist talks and unique hands-on workshops.
You will be able to see artefacts from the digs, hear first-hand from the experts about what they can reveal, and learn how techniques like ancient DNA, isotopes, and careful examination of clues etched into bones can illuminate the long-lost details of daily life.
Entry to the museum is free. Specialist talks are £5 and the workshops £40 per person (plus booking fee). These are expected to sell out quickly so book early to avoid disappointment.
