Calling All Little Archaeologists: Heritage Week at Gallows Hill Sunday 19th August 2018 10am-4pm

The Children’s Big Viking Dig will return to Gallows Hill for Heritage Week and the European Year of Culture 2018 on Sunday the 19th of August 2018.

The School of Irish Archaeology will recreate a replica ‘Viking House’ and excavation site where children can explore the Viking world through a simulated archaeological dig.

This site is specially constructed alongside Gallows Hill Community Big Dig, and it gives children the chance to experience the life of an archaeologist by learning how to excavate the remains of a Viking house. 

The Big Dig experience is suited for children aged 5 to 12 years of age.  As they dig through the site, children will unearth Viking treasures and artefacts dating back 1000 years.  They will learn about the lives of our Viking ancestors as history is brought to life by qualified archaeologists. 

Places are very limited and booking is essential for this event, please contact Waterford County Museum on: 058 45960 or email info@waterfordmuseum.ie

The event has been funded and supported by Creative Waterford, (Waterford City/County Council).
