Really? A Dig on a Council Estate

17 November, 2018, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Come along to this pop-up expo and explore the surprising discoveries made by local residents taking part in an archaeological dig on a post-war council estate. Find out what the dig revealed about its history and why it matters; and contribute your own memories of childhood play and ideas about social housing. Drop-in and talk to dig participants, look at the self-directed wall-mounted photo-narrative and finds display, take part in a hands-on mock excavation and win prizes in games including archaeological bingo and a finds hunt.

In partnership with
