Dig the Summer at Museum of Liverpool

A week-long celebration of all things archaeological at the Museum of Liverpool brings history to life this summer, from 20 to 27 July 2016.

From handling sessions, trails, role-players, crafts, talks and tours, the Festival of Archaeology has something for young and old to get involved with and see for themselves the many ways archaeology gives us a powerful connection to our past.

The festival includes exciting events run in partnership with Liverpool John Moores University. Live experiments on the Formby Footprints inform us about life in prehistoric Merseyside and facial reconstruction specialists from Face Lab will explain how skeletons can be used to understand people from the past and what they looked like.

Liz Stewart, Curator of Archaeology and the Historic Environment, said: “Our Festival of Archaeology is a bustling programme for people of all ages with an interest in archaeology and history. From prehistoric footprints to the recycling habits of the Vikings and clay pipes of the industrial age, the festival spans centuries of this region’s history.

“The Festival also covers the future of archaeology, as Liverpool John Moores University’s research group Face Lab lead demonstrations of their latest methods of investigation and show how new technology can help us understand our past.”
