Kids Dig York 2024

Do you know a budding archaeologist? Do impromptu excavations take place in your back garden? We are delighted to announce the return of Kids Dig York this Easter!

Kids Dig York is a project aimed at children aged between 8 and 12. Sessions are led by professional archaeologists from York Archaeology and will run twice daily from Monday March 25th to April 6th. During each 3-hour session, children, accompanied by parents/guardians, will get hands-on experience of real archaeological fieldwork in a trench at our excavation at Willow House, just within the City Walls near Walmgate Bar.

Finds so far have ranged from Roman to Victorian, and we can’t wait to see what the kids unearth next!

Dates: Monday March 25th to Saturday April 6th 2024

Times: 9.30am – 12.30pm and 1.30pm – 4.30 pm. 

Up to six kids per session. 

Prices start from £65 for 1 adult and 1 child.
