Event description

Description

Join us this August at the Market House Festival's Fun Day on the 5th August for the Big Dig event as part of a family fun day. Online places are limited and a fee of €3 is to be paid on the day! There is also an option to book with us on the day of the event at the venue.

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. During the day we will be looking at how the Viking's and Norman's lived through the eyes of archaeologists.

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!
