About The Event
Each year SHARP holds a one-day public event, our Festival of Archaeology. It is an opportunity for SHARP to share what we have learnt about the history of Sedgeford with the public.
There is something for everyone with plenty of free family friendly activities such our teaching trench, activities for children, mini-battles, and a historical hunt. For the adults, we have demonstrations, displays, and tours of the excavation where you can hear about the latest discoveries from the archaeologists digging on the site. We also have an onsite café that will serve drinks, homemade nibbles, and refreshments throughout the day.
Entry on to the field is free, and most of the activities are also included for free, making it a cheap day out for all. However, one of the aims of the day is to do a bit of fundraising for the project. As well as having our merchandise on sale, we run fun raffles and tombola’s, and have donation buckets available around the site for general donations. All the money collected goes directly towards our excavation work, post-ex programmes, and helps keep SHARP affordable for all.
We do hope you will be able to join us for this year's Festival of Archaeology, which promises to be a great day for all.
