The Festival of Archaeology is on the 23 and 24 July and is fast approaching.

Last year we had an amazing team of volunteers helping at the festival and we need your help again this year. It is a really exciting weekend with lots going on, including talks in the lecture hall, a showground of living history and heritage, and an archaeological  dig in the grounds of the museum by Dr Phil Harding.FEST1606_0

If you are interested in helping at the festival, please let Katy England know on

 There are two briefing sessions for volunteers who would like to help out. These are:

 Tuesday 14 June 2.30pm – 3.30pm and Friday 17 June 10.30am – 11.30am

Please let Katy know which session you can attend. You only need to attend one session.

If you are an engagement volunteer and would like to do an engagement volunteering shift over that weekend, please contact Jan Thorne (
