Event description

Description

Join the Big Dig for Cruinniú na nÓg, at Bray Head, Co. Wicklow for a special day on the 23rd June 2018 from 11am - 4pm.

Age Group: 5 - 12 years old

The Big Dig Bray combines creativity and archaeology, and is a must for all children interested in treasure hunting, making coins or designing their own medieval leather work. At this hands-on and fun event, kids get to participate in a simulated archaeological excavation, digging for Viking treasures and artefacts, and learning more about the lifestyles of their Viking ancestors. There will also be a demonstration of Medieval Coin Striking Workshop where participants can learn more about the artistic skills involved and have a go at striking their own coin. At the Medieval Draw-String Pouch Workshop children learn about leather working and learn how to make their own medieval draw-string pouch, which they take home. Led by ‘School of Irish Archaeology’ staff, the children learn
about the foul process of leather working from the initial removal of hide, to the preparation of leather in the tanner's yard, to when it is finally ready for wearing. The gory, mucky details of this process are always a big hit! The ‘Big Dig’ runs on hourly slots from 11.00am to 4.00pm with advance booking required, while the coin and leather workshops run on a drop in basis.
