The Archaeology Open Day in pictures
Friday 30 November saw our archaeology trainees open up their Allen Gardens site to the public. The day was filled with family-friendly hands-on archaeological activities, including finds washing and identification. It was also a chance for the trainees to share some of the artefacts found on the site.
Check out the picture gallery to see what we got up to.
