Our 45-minute workshop sessions are specially designed to spark your pupils’ interest in the past by exploring a variety of fun and interesting themes.

For the safety and comfort of our schools and staff whilst COVID-19 social distancing guidance is in place, we have modified our schools workshop offer and we are currently offering two archaeology-themed workshops, Roman Archaeology Revealed! and Prehistory Revealed!, which have been adapted to offer pupils an engaging and interactive session with our DIG team in a safe and hygienic way.

Roman Archaeology Revealed!

York started life as the Roman fortress of Eboracum in 71 AD and archaeology gives us an exciting glimpse into what life might have been like back then. Take an exclusive look at archaeological evidence from the fort, houses and workshops of Roman York and piece together an idea of how people lived in the bustling town.

Prehistory Revealed!

Discuss who the earliest settlers in Yorkshire were and learn about the evidence they left behind, examining their tools, homes, and even their diets! Can your pupils help to reconstruct how life changed for people living in Britain from the Stone Age, to the Bronze Age and the Iron Age?
Looking for digital options? If you would prefer to learn about archaeology from the comfort of your classroom, you can now hear from our archaeologists through our interacive learning sessions- take a look at our new virtual outreach offer to learn more.
