DIG is a hands-on archaeological adventure giving kids the chance to become trainee ‘diggers’ and discover the most exciting artefacts from 2000 years of York’s history!

With four special in-door excavation pits, filled with synthetic soil (no mess!) all based on real-life digs in the city and filled with replica Roman, Viking, medieval and Victorian finds, children can grab a trowel and explore how people lived in these times.

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!
