The Festival incorporates hundreds of in-person and virtual events delivered by community groups, heritage organisations, universities, commercial units, and more in-person and online across the UK.
This year our Festival of Archaeology theme is Archaeology and Creativity.
Archaeology at its heart is a creative process. It’s about exploration and imagination, it’s visual stimulation and inspiration; it’s the process by which we create memory and meaning. By drawing on innovative technologies and using a wide range of tools archaeology helps us think about the world we live in.
Archaeology is about storytelling and archaeologists use creative practices such as art, music, creative writing, poetry and theatre to bring to life the material we uncover and the stories of the places and people around us.
