DigNation is the festival for history and archaeology lovers. First launched in 2018 by DigVentures and Tony Robinson, with support from hundreds of Time Team fans around the world, the inaugural event was held in honour of Time Team’s most beloved archaeologist Mick Aston.
The result is a brilliant series of talks, filled with archaeology, humour and warm Time Team memories, all of which will now be available to watch every Sunday on YouTube, and on the DigVentures website.
Speakers included Tony Robinson, Carenza Lewis, Francis Pryor, Helen Geak, Phil Harding, Stewart Ainsworth, John Gater, Teresa Hall and many more of Mick’s closest friends and colleagues, who all shared their latest archaeological discoveries, as well as their favourite stories from their 20 years together on Time Team.
But it wasn’t just a one-off event. Tickets for the next DigNation festival are now on sale, and it promises to be another jam-packed weekend of talks by renowned archaeologists and historians, fun-filled Fringe events, and hands-on archaeological excavation.
