Join our archaeologists at The Higgins, Bedford on the 16th March and see the past come to life!

Explore our discoveries from the A428 excavations. Learn what it was like to live in ancient Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire from archaeologists working on the dig. You can also meet our finds specialists, get up close with finds, and uncover the incredible stories they tell us about the past.

Want to pick up new skills that would help you survive in the Iron Age? We’ll be joined by experts from Butser Ancient Farm, who’ll show you how people spun yarn and wove material for their clothes. Then have a go at some ancient crafts yourself, including basket weaving and making a brooch inspired by our finds.

There’s also the chance to step into the past though our immersive VR experience, developed exclusively for the A428.
