About the event
Please visit the CBA Festival of Archaeology website for more information.
The CBA Festival of Archaeology incorporates hundreds of in-person and virtual events delivered by community groups, heritage organisations, universities, commercial units, and more.
It promotes involvement in archaeology through flagship days such as “A Day in Archaeology” and “Youth Day” and allows individuals to get involved from wherever they are, all year round, through our wide range of downloadable resources. Through the Festival, the CBA helps over half a million people to participate in archaeology, explore stories of place, and connect with the environment around them.
Each year the Festival has a dynamic and engaging theme. The theme for 2022 is Journeys. Journeys happen at every scale, through space, time and personal experience. Journeys include daily commutes, trade routes and migrations. Journeys cross land and sea or take place within yourself as a personal journey.
We want to encourage people to discover the archaeology and heritage that is all around them and to explore and share their own or learn about other journeys. Unearthing the journey of sites, buildings, places, people, and events that make our local communities so special.
