Have the recent discoveries at Powick left you wanting to dig up more history about the county you live in?

Worcestershire Archaeology Day is once again returning for 2019, and this year’s event will be taking place for the first time at the Hive on Saturday 26th October.

The event has always been a popular one on the Archive and Archaeology calendar, and has run for over 30 years now.

This year’s event will run from 10am-5pm and will include a talk about the recent new discoveries on the site of the Battle of Worcester, which made national news last month.

Councillor Lucy Hodgson, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Communities, said: “Our Archaeology day has proven to be very popular over the last 30 years and we’re hoping that this year is no different. The recent Battle of Worcester finds really captured the imagination, but there is so much more to discover about archaeology in Worcestershire, and I’d encourage people to come along.”

There'll also be talks on Ribbesford House, searching for the lost village at Croome, the dig at Cripplegate Park and the Fantastic Finds of 2019.

Tickets for this year’s event cost £20 and can be booked by visiting the Explore the past website.
