Festival of Leicestershire and Rutland Archaeology

This summer, help celebrate the rich and fascinating heritage of our two counties. Explore the archaeology of your local area, watch experts at work and experience the excitement of archaeology with have-a-go events.

The Festival has something for everyone, with family friendly activities at museums, guided walks of our counties’ historic sites, talks by experts, displays and exhibitions, and chances to get your hands dirty with a bit of excavation. With over 80 events planned over four weeks, this year’s event promises to be bigger and better than before.
