The Big Dig

Irish School Of Archeology

We are excited to announce that the School of Irish Archeology will be bringing their Big Dig event to this year’s Timahoe Heritage Festival.

Join us for a day of hands-on excavation and discovery as we unearth the secrets of Ireland’s past. Whether your child is an archeology enthusiast or just curious about history, the Big Dig is an event not to be missed.

PLEASE NOTE – BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL FOR THIS EVENT!

The School of Irish Archaeology is proud to introduce the next step in the evolution of creative and hands-on learning for our younger generation. Our replica ‘Viking House’ and excavation site allows children and young adults to explore the Viking world through a simulated archaeology dig.

The site is a fully mobile construction which is suitable for Festivals, Family Fun Days, Heritage/Corporate Events and is now available for participating schools and event centres nationwide. The workshop gives children and young adults the chance to experience what it is like to be an archaeologist by learning how to excavate the remains of a Viking house.

As they dig through the site, participants will unearth Viking treasures and artefacts dating back 1,000 years. They will learn about the lives of our Viking ancestors as history is brought to life by qualified archaeologists. Our educational workshops offer a unique experience that will leave our future generations fascinated by our ancient ancestors and eager to learn more.
