About this Event

Join the Big Dig for Heritage Week 2020 in Cabragh Wetlands where we will celebrate a family-friendly Heritage Event this summer. Everyone who attends, will partake in, and enjoy all the amazing and fun-filled workshops over the course of the day. Our child friendly Big Dig will be there from 11am - 3pm running workshops at 11am, 1pm and 3pm. This free event event is kindly supported by Tipperary County Council and funded by the Heritage Council and is taking part in conjunction with Heritage Week 2020! This is a ticket only event - places are limited, so book online now!

The children will partake in our popular Big Dig Workshop plus we will be offering special add-on workshops as part of the event. The children will get to see our Viking Coin Making Workshop where we will demonstrate how Ireland's first coin was minted. Participants will get a little something to bring their coin home in when they partake in our Draw-string Medieval Pouch Making activity. To top the day off, all children will make their very own leather scabbard, learn about Viking Weaponry and each take a Viking Seax (Wooden Dagger) home with them!! Availability is limited!

About us

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!
