What we offer on a school trip
Starting your training in our Briefing Hut you will learn about the world of archaeology & what you will be doing during your DIG adventure.
Once you’re briefed it’s time to visit the DIG pits and start uncovering the past!
This is where the fun really starts! Kids can dig down deep (in our synthetic, no mess soil) to discover artifacts from the four major periods of York’s fascinating history. An archaeologist is on hand to answer your questions on your finds & help you piece together what it would have been like to live in past.
Kids can get hands on with history and actually touch finds from previous YAT digs, including pottery, bone and even antlers! You will discover what these artefacts tell us about the lives of people who used them.
