Archaeology experiences for all

Mick’s Army

Sold Out

Join us from 22nd – 23rd September 2018 on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne for Team DV’s first-ever archaeology festival.

Can’t make it to Lindisfarne? Never fear! We’re hosting everything online for audiences around the world!

DigNation’s inaugural event is themed as ‘Dig for Mick’, and is planned as a celebration of the legacy of archaeologist and Time Team presenter Professor Mick Aston. Sir Tony Robinson, Mick’s co-host and lifelong friend, and the Patron of DigVentures’ Advisory Board, has helped to create the festival.

Tony wanted to host an event inspired by Mick’s mission to increase public understanding of archaeology and enable wider participation in the field, as well as recognise how the legacy of his work can be seen across academic, professional and public archaeology. And, of course, to make it as much fun as possible, because Mick loved a party!

Welcome aboard our mission for Mick: thank you for helping us to make this event happen. In return for joining Mick’s Army, you will be acknowledged as a Founder of DigNation for this and all future events, and we’ll see you on Twitter Periscope and Facebook Live during the festival for all the FREE behind the scenes action!

And the best bit? You can stay snug as a bug in rug tucked up at home in your jim-jams, watching us get drenched and blown sideways by the British ‘summer’ weather!
