    124. TOUCHING THE PAST: WHAT EXPERIMENTAL ARCHAEOLOGY CAN TEACH US ABOUT HISTORY

    Family Ticket: 2 adults, 3 children; Child Ticket: aged 5-15; Under 5: FREE

    In this event, our panel will discuss the importance of not only archaeology – uncovering the traces from the past – but also experimental archaeology, that is, learning more about our forebears from the process of doing: using the limitations of tools and technology from the past to try and understand how and why things were constructed in the way they were. The panel will discuss their own wide-ranging fields of study, what they’ve learned and how we can better understand the past.

    100. THE GREAT BRITISH DIG: HISTORY IN YOUR BACK GARDEN

    Family Ticket: 2 adults, 3 children; Child Ticket: aged 5-15; Under 5: FREE

    Each week on Channel 4's The Great British Dig, a team of archaeologists descend on streets and gardens the length and breadth of the country to discover the treasures we have been living right on top of without realising. Finds include the actual frontier of the Roman Empire in Britain, the Tudor palace of an Elizabethan spymaster and a prehistoric village under a school playing field. In conversation with Dan Snow, on-screen expert Dr Chloe Duckworth will explain the team's techniques in uncovering a lost world of human stories just a few shovelfuls beneath our feet and offer practical tips for anyone wanting to give it a go themselves.
