Dig & Discover

Tue 23rd July 2024 10am & 2pm

Free drop-in

Craven Museum will be celebrating The Festival of Archaeology 2024 with a family Dig & Discover Day.

Join us in the Concert Hall for a range of archaeology-based family activities. You’ll be able to excavate artefacts from our dig boxes, contribute to our community Lego Build (reconstructing a historic building) and explore local communities of the past through oral history clips, object handling and crafts!

There are two sessions:
– 10am – 12pm
– 2pm – 4pm
