Theme Day 2024

The Council for British Archaeology Festival Team present a bonanza of community engagement in the Theme Day.

We will have our traditional (well it has been 3 years!) suite of skills you can master in your own home or as a group, as well as a creative event where you can get involved either in person or online. You can join us for online guided walks to explore archaeology, or for an online promted drink and draw session. Our amazing Youth Resources will also be launched, as well the announcement of the Marsh Community Archaeology Award winners.


9am - Our Geovay guided walk releases!

10am - We're releasing our exciting YAC Young People resources, full of fun activities on archaeology and community. 

12pm - At noon we will be announcing the winners of the 2024 Marsh Community Archaeology Awards via the CBA's social media channels.

2pm - We're partnering with Bloosmbury to offer free 1-1 sessions for aspiring researchers to explore how to get published.

7pm - Our Drink and Draw event starts! Join us on Twitter (x) for the full event, or one or two sessions!
