Festival of British ArchaeologyGet to grips with London's local heritage and see archaeology in action at the Festival of British Archaeology, a nationwide festival which includes special events taking place all over London. With excavation open days, behind-the-scenes tours, workshops, guided walks, talks and family fun days, there will be something for everyone. Highlights include The Rose Revealed, a look at detailed plans to dig, conserve and display artefacts from London's most important Elizabethan theatre; a session on 'Londinium: the Roman city' in the Crypt Museum of All Hallows by the Tower which includes a visit to the Amphitheatre remains under Guildhall Art Gallery; and free, fun family events at UCL Institute of Archaeology including behind the scenes tours, art activities and artefact handling. Added to these are talks at the British Museum, activities at Eltham Palace and excavating Richmond, organised by the Museum of Richmond. Digging up the past, the Festival of British Archaeology promises to reveal there's more under your feet than mere concrete and soil.
