DigNation is the world’s first history festival where you get to make history, and this year it’s going totally Tudor!
DigNation is a new kind of festival for archaeology and history lovers: it’s participatory, and accessible to audiences around the world.
You can hear talks from amazing historians, enjoy loads of fun-filled fringe events, and see live archaeology that you can help to uncover. It really is the history festival where you get to make history, and this year it’s going totally Tudor!
Taking place within the beautiful grounds of one of the Tudors’ most beloved palaces, DigNation 2020 promises to be an unmissable celebration of the biggest, boldest and most exciting new developments currently happening in Tudor research.
This year’s lineup is being curated by DigVentures and Dr Anna Whitelock, Director of the London Centre for Public History and Heritage at Royal Holloway.
From big name personalities, to cutting edge researchers, you can expect to hear from some of the most enthralling speakers making waves in Tudor studies today.
And right at the heart of the festival, alongside the main speaker tent, is an archaeological excavation to unearth a lost Tudor garden. You can stand by and soak it all in, or jump in alongside the archaeologists by booking a Dig or Finds Experience.
Plus, the whole thing is taking place on the 500th anniversary of one of the biggest Tudor gatherings in history – the Field of the Cloth of Gold. Surely there’s no better excuse to come along to a big, fat Tudor history festival than that?!
