The Festival of British Archaeology 2009 takes place between Saturday 18th July – Sunday 2nd August 2009
Each year the Festival helps museums, local societies, national and countryside parks, universities and heritage organisations hold hundreds of events showcasing the very best of British archaeology.
The Festival aims to give everyone the opportunity to learn about their local heritage, to see archaeology in action, and to get involved.
Events ranging from excavation open days and behind-the-scenes tours to family fun days and finds identification workshops are taking place all over the UK.
