What do archaeologists do with all the artefacts they find? This free workshop is your chance to get hands on and find out! Using real materials from a recent excavation, archaeologists from DigVentures will show you how to delicately clean, sort and identify ancient artefacts – and what they can tell us about the people who left them behind thousands of years ago.

No previous experience necessary. Suitable for ages 12+ (under 18s must be accompanied by an adult).
