DIG Workshops

We have two dedicated workshops at DIG for older learners, looking into the exciting field of archaeology.

People, Place and the Past – Changing Urban Landscapes

Using the Hungate area of York as a case study, this workshop explores ways of investigating and interpreting past and present societies within a changing urban landscape over 2000 years, from the Romans to 21st Century urban redevelopment.

Improving Living Conditions in 19th and 20th Century York

Using archaeological and historical evidence from the Hungate archaeological excavations, this workshop explores the important role played by York in the improvement of the lives and living conditions of working people in the British Isles.

These workshops last approximately 1 hour.
