Do you live with a budding archaeologist? Or a child that loves to dig and make mess? Rather than let them loose in your garden how about a trip to DIG?
DIG is a hands-on archaeological experience where children can learn all about ancient artefacts and are trained on how to discover these treasures in one of four specially designed excavation pits, filled with synthetic soil (no mess!). Armed with a trowel, watch as they unearth Roman, Viking, Medieval and Victorian items, learning about history as they go.
For the little diggers, there’s a special area where children can dig, play, handle objects and listen to stories that bring history to life. Included in your admission is access to the Hungate exhibition, filled with artefacts and stories of people who lived there from Roman times to the early 20th century.
Become an archaeologist and dig up a piece of local history!
