The UCL Institute of Archaeology emailed me to tell me they will soon be hosting the World Archaeology Festival. It's a Free entry. This is a one-day annual event taking place on Saturday 13th June from 12pm-5pm.
There will be a range of drop-in activities suitable for all ages in the Institute building itself and in the adjacent surroundings of Bloomsbury’s Gordon Square, including:
- How to Make Flint Tools
- Prehistoric Butchery
- Fragmented Frescos
- Cave Painting
- Underwater Shipwreck
- Whose Poo?
- Pottery Making
- Sandpit Archaeology
- Fish Mummification
There will be hosted guided tours of the Institute's internationally acclaimed collections and there will be opportunities to handle archaeological finds.
Admission is free and no ticket required and the event is open to all. I am really excited and hoping to make this event myself so I may see you there!
