DIG is one of a kind...
“One of the best family days out. No other experience gets you as close to the excitement of archaeological discovery.” – Dan Snow
DIG is a hands-on archaeology-themed visitor attraction created by the people behind JORVIK Viking Centre. Kids can grab a trowel and discover only the most exciting archaeological artefacts from the 2000 years of history hidden under the streets of York in synthetic (mess-free!) soil. There are four excavation pits (filled with Roman, Viking, medieval and Victorian artefacts) for kids to dig, shake, see, feel and find.
There's also an interactive talk led by a friendly archaeologist- a great opportunity for kids to get stuck in and ask any burning questions they might have about history. Real artefacts are passed around (including a fossilised poo!) that kids can feel, take a closer look at and ask any more questions.
After that, there's time to explore the exhibition and see what wildlife you can spot in the DIG garden.
