Learning Through Archaeology

Discover prehistory, Romans, Anglo-Saxons and Vikings at two great attractions.

Visits to JORVIK and DIG make for a unique learning experience. These two attractions together explore every aspect of our past, from prehistory to 1066 and beyond, and show how archaeology can be the starting-point for bringing history to life.

The world-renowned JORVIK Viking Centre uses archaeology to reconstruct a Viking-era city in stunning detail, and invites your learners to examine artefacts from the famous Coppergate dig with the help of our interactive Viking staff.

DIG: An Archaeological Adventure allows learners to get active and hands-on with their own investigations, digging, sorting and interpreting, just like real archaeologists.
