Bristol’s Brilliant Archaeology Festival: Saturday 3rd August

On Saturday 3rd August it will be Bristol’s Brilliant Archaeology Festival, a FREE fun-packed day for children!

Taking place at Blaise Museum in Henbury, the event will include tours, displays, demonstrations and archaeological activities.

Children will enjoy becoming archaeologists for the day and will explore objects and displays from some of Bristol’s most recent archaeological sites. They can also take tours to visit archaeologist Amelia Edward’s grave and Blaise Castle.

There will be chances to meet Anglo Saxon re-enactors, have a go at archery, learn some survival skills, find out about the work of local societies and see a mini exhibition of paintings showing Roman Sea Mills.

Younger archaeologists can have a go at a ‘mini-excavation’, dress up, get an Iron Age face painting, join an archaeological feast, craft sessions and much more.

A host of local societies, heritage organisations, re-enactors and field archaeologists will be on hand to share their archaeological expertise.

Bristol’s Brilliant Archaeology Festival takes place on a drop-in basis from 11am – 4pm. It is a free event, donations welcome.
