Summer Fun - Archaeology Week

11am - 4pm


Ever fancied having a go as an archaeologist? The Workhouse Museum will be getting out the trowels for a Victorian dig – where young visitors will be able to have a go at excavating in their large dig-box. Unearth different artefacts and see if you can tell whether the “body” is a Victorian or an Anglo-Saxon.  Then measure and draw your finds and discover more about the body in the Workhouse Garden. Young minds will be delighted to find out the secrets of poo and what this can tell us about the past! There will also be opportunities to create a “Victorian” or “Anglo-Saxon” artefact to take home too...& plenty more besides. Most activities are included free with your ticket.
