Join Colchester Museums this July to celebrate the national ‘Festival of Archaeology’. There is a range of exciting and engaging special events and exhibitions planned across the three Museum sites.
The Festival of Archaeology runs from 16 – 31 July 2016 and is coordinated by the Council for British Archaeology (CBA). The festival encourages everyone to explore the archaeology of their local area, watch experts at work and experience archaeology for themselves.
There is a range of ways to get involved, there’s the chance to get your objects identified by our Finds Liaison Officer, behind the scenes highlight tours, exclusive talks and a number of special exhibitions.
Councillor Tim Young, Portfolio Holder for Regeneration and Culture said:
Colchester is lucky to have such a wealth of history all around us. The Festival of Archaeology is a great way to get everyone, young and old, interested and engaged with local archaeology.
Colchester Museums are hosting a number of special events and exhibitions and I would urge people to come along and get involved.
