Festival of Archaeology, 17th July – 1st August 2021

As we hope you will have noticed, CBA has been putting a lot of energy into this year’s Festival of Archaeology, which is very community oriented, and will again have both on the ground and virtual/online aspects. Given the circumstances, the dates are seen as rather fluid as many organisations, including ours, have had to move events and activities around to observe restrictions. Last year more than 2 million people accessed Festival activities and resources.

You can keep up to date with local and national events on the CBA’s FoA page here: https://festival.archaeologyuk.org/ . Highlights will include A Day in Archaeology on 29 July, where blogs from all manner of people will demonstrate ways to get involved: https://festival.archaeologyuk.org/day/about , and resources for self-led tours, games and competitions.

Likewise, if you or your group are running activities, probably any time around the ‘official’ festival period during July or August, do register them on the directory on this site.
