Description

Join the Big Dig Workshop August 24th for Heritage Week 2019 at the Couthouse, Weaver's Square in Baltinglass for a child friendly event. Online places are limited and places will fill up, so book now! We will be located directly outside the Couthouse in the carpark. Please give yourself plenty of time for parking and please, if you think you are not going to make the event, please cancel your ticket in order to free it up for another member of the public who may enjoy coming to our workshop.


The School of Irish Archaeology is proud to introduce their finest product the Big Dig! The replica ‘Viking House’ workshop and excavation is designed around children from 5 – 12 years of age.


This innovative product allows children to explore the Viking world through a simulated and controlled archaeology dig. Children have an opportunity to experience what it is like to be an archaeologist by learning how to excavate the remains of a Viking house. They will have an opportunity to dig for Viking treasures and artefacts dating back over 1000 years and learn about our Viking ancestors through the eyes of real archaeologists!


We ensure this educational and one of a kind experience won’t leave your children disappointed. We guarantee it will leave them wanting to know much more about the work of archaeologists and who our ancient ancestors were!
