Description

Join the Big Dig in Newmarket Square on the 27th August as part of our free event for Heritage Week 2017. We will be at the Dublin Flea Market carrying out our Big Dig Event for children from 11pm - 5pm. Hourly sessions are available, so book online now! Places are limited but there will be a chance to book on the day of the event in Newmarket! This free events purpose is to make a very popular educational tool for children more widely accesible to all and to highlight the value of understanding our cultural heritage with Ireland. We hope to offer local urban and rural communities throughout Ireland a better understanding of their local history and archaeology by the means of our Big Dig.

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!
