Still digging ... Recent excavations around Avebury

This year at Avebury we’ll be shining a light on recent excavations through a pop up exhibition in the Barn gallery. This exhibition will highlight many of the results of those excavations alongside a selection of the artefacts discovered.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Avebury has been a magnet for archaeologists for over three hundred years and the work of the 1930s in which many stones were re-erected is well-represented in books and the on-site museum. Excavations over the last twenty to thirty years are less widely known and this exhibition highlights many of the results of that work alongside a selection of the artefacts. Even if you know Avebury well, why not come and have a look at some of what we now know about this complicated and intriguing place.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00

 

*Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
