Festival of Archaeology at Corfe Castle
Join us for the UK’s biggest annual celebration of archaeology. On Sunday 31 July, discover what life would have been like inside the castle walls, try your hand at historic crafts and see artefacts ranging from the Neolithic period to the Iron Age.
The National Trust is proud to support the Council for British Archaeology’s Festival of Archaeology which celebrates the fun and creativity that can be had with archaeology, and encourages people to explore and connect with the human stories that can be found throughout our natural and historic places. At Corfe Castle, we will be hosting the final day of this national event on Sunday 31 July, with free admission, family activities, talks and hands on experiences. Find out more about things to see and do below.
" Archaeology is all about uncovering stories of people at our places, and sharing these stories to help people connect to the environments around them. As archaeologists we unearth hidden clues buried just beneath our feet, and use features hidden in plain sight such as earthworks, buildings and ruins to understand how people before us lived, worked and played in the landscape."
