The Great British Archaeology Comic Book

As part of the Festival of Archaeology 2020, the Young Archaeologists Club created the Great British Archaeology Comic Book (which you can download below). 

Young people were invited to send us a drawing on the theme of ‘what do you picture when you think of archaeology?’. We had submissions from people ranging from 7 - 21, all bringing something unique to the project. A professional illustrator then wove a number of the drawing submissions into a short narrative graphic story - a comic.

This project is part of our partnership work with the Shout Out Loud project. Shout Out Loud is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund through its #KicktheDust programme designed to encourage and involve more young people in heritage.
