The Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology hosted their themed Kids Dig It Archaeology Fun Day last Saturday to give children a unique and fun holiday experience.
Over 585 children and parents converged at St Michael’s College to participate in a huge range of activities including: stone tool making, archery, ribbon dancing, shield painting, medieval games and so many more.
Other highlights of the day included the children’s costume contest, face painting, jumping castle and loads of other activities.
This event was hosted by the Abbey Museum to encourage childrens’ interest in history and archaeology through fun and interactive activities. Saturday’s Dig It Day 2012 builds on the success of the previous Dig It Day hosted in the 2011 September school holidays.
