Archaeological Dig Pits

Come along to a fun, hands-on children’s activity at the Dig Pits in the Basing House grounds!

During this hour long session, you will be shown the basics of archaeology, get the opportunity to dig for authentic historical artefacts from Roman and Tudor times and be encouraged to think about how these objects are lost and what they can teach us about the past (with time to explore the ruins at the end of the session.)

Limited tickets available per session, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
