Festival of British Archaeology

The CBA’s Festival of British Archaeology is an annual, two-week-long extravaganza of heritage events, which takes place across the UK and has been running for over 20 years. Each year the Festival showcases the very best of British archaeology, with hundreds of special events organised and held by museums, local societies, national and countryside parks, universities, and heritage organisations across the UK. Events range from excavation visits and skills, to guided walks of local monuments, special talks, hands-on activities, finds identification days and lots more. The Festival presents everyone with the opportunity to learn about their local heritage, to see archaeology in action, and to get involved. It takes place every summer – this year from 14-29 July 2012.
