3 Ways To Enjoy Archaeology Online This Summer

At DigVentures, we’re NEVER short of ideas for bringing archaeology to people who love it. Maybe you’re getting ready to go on a dig and want to brush up on your skills before you head off? Perhaps you’ve got other plans, but don’t want to miss out? Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered: this summer, we’ve got more ways for you to enjoy archaeology online than ever before!

Due to popular demand, we’ve released a FRESH NEW BATCH of tickets for DigNation – the archaeology festival for Mick Aston. We’ve also launched a brand new online archaeology course, and (as always) you can choose to follow one of our EPIC crowdfunded digs with regular updates direct to your device.

Whatever your plans this summer, don’t miss your chance to indulge your curiosity and take a little bit of archaeology with you wherever you go!

1. Follow A *LIVE* Excavation

Can’t enough of the Anglo-Saxons? Fascinated by the Romans? Intrigued by the Iron Age? There’s PLENTY of archaeology heading your way this summer! Support one of our digs, and you’ll get regular videos, blogs and livestreams so you can follow the discoveries and take a little bit of archaeology with you wherever you go – we can’t do it without you!

2. Grab A DigNation Virtual Ticket

DigNation is the brand new archaeology festival for Mick Aston taking place 22nd-23rd September. Hosted by Tony Robinson, many of Mick’s closest colleagues will be gathering for an awesome weekend of talks in his honour. Due to popular demand, we’ve released a fresh new batch of Virtual Tickets so for just £25 you can watch all the talks online, from anywhere in the world!

3. Do An Online Archaeology Course
