‘Kids Dig It!’ Archaeology Family Fun

September 30 @ 9:30 am - October 4 @ 3:00 pm

Have you ever wondered what it would really be like to be an archaeologist or what they do? Come and find out at the Abbey Museum in the spring school holidays. You can dig for ancient treasures in our mini dig, restore and identify artefacts, discovering about people and their lives in true archaeologist fashion (by going through their rubbish) and lots more.

Craft activities will focus on Mesopotamian and Mesoamerican cultures.

Activities include:

  • Archery
  • Mini Archaeology Dig
  • Archaeology in the Lab
    • Pottery restoration
    • Midden study
    • Coprolite investigation
  • Paper crafts
  • and much more!

Doors open at 9:30am with activities running from 10:00am – 3:00pm.

Bring a picnic lunch or head to the Abbey Cafe for a delicious selection of food (sandwiches, hot dogs, and hamburgers), drinks, cake and coffee at great prices! Running Monday to Friday, 10:30am – 1:30pm.
