What we offer on a school trip
At DIG, kids get to discover only the most exciting archaeological artefacts from the 2000 years of history hidden under the streets of York. Four replica excavation pits are filled with Roman, Viking (see if you can spot any of the artefacts on display at JORVIK!), medieval and Victorian finds, so they can grab a trowel and dig up the clues that show how people lived in these times.
Owned by the same archaeologists who discovered the Viking-age city and created JORVIK Viking Centre, DIG offers you a unique archaeological adventure to get you on your way to becoming a real archaeologist.
Can’t visit in person? With York Archaeology Learning Virtual Outreach, you can invite a friendly archaeologist into your classroom via videoconferencing! Your students can spend 45 minutes exploring the fascinating archaeology of a period of your choice. All you need to take part in a webcam, microphone and access to a videoconferencing platform.
