Illuminating the past – Enhancing the present – Inspiring the future

40years: off to a good start

Our exhibition ’40years: Canterbury Archaeological Trust’ opened to the public on Good Friday and was viewed by 1,709 visitors over Easter weekend. A great start to a busy month.

If you missed the first Little Dig family event on Saturday, don’t worry, two more are scheduled for Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th April. Initiated at the Big Dig during the Whitefriars redevelopment, Little Dig gives 5 to 11 year olds the chance to be an archaeologist. Real artefacts are archaeologically excavated using the tools of the trade, all under the supervision of our Education Officer, Marion Green.

The Little Dig has travelled far and wide, to Washington and to the Continent. It has proved popular wherever it goes as you can see from these pictures taken at Whitefriars and at Richborough.
