Tomorrow is the start of the Festival of Archaeology, with hundreds of events organised up and down the country. This annual event is organised by the Council for British Archaeology and is a great way for anyone interested in archaeology or local history to get involved as there are a huge range of activities including guided walks, workshops, excavation visits and hands on activities for children. Visit http://www.archaeologyfestival.org.uk/whatson for further details and to see whats on near you.
Here at Ironbridge we’ve got a number of events organised, a list of which can be found on the Community Archaeology Events page. Everyone is welcome to get involved, whether you’ve been digging as an amateur for some time, or you’ve often thought that archaeology looks to be an enjoyable and interesting past time but you never knew how to get involved. There is an event for everyone so make the most of this nice weather and go outdoors to experience the amazing archaeology this country has to offer.
