The CBA Festival of British Archaeology is made possible each year thanks to the huge amount of support given to the event by heritage, archaeological and historical organisations across the UK, who arrange and run all the events, many of them organised entirely by volunteers.
All organisations who participate in the CBA Festival share the aspiration of encouraging everyone to take an interest in their past, to gain knowledge and understanding of our heritage, and to appreciate the need to protect our historic environment for generations to come. The CBA Festival presents an opportunity for the whole heritage sector to work together to celebrate this UK-wide event and to present numerous opportunities for the general public to delve further into the past.
Whether through visiting the remains of ancient dwellings, handling historical objects or listening to a tale of the discovery of a new treasure hoard, the CBA Festival of British Archaeology is a chance for you to throw yourself into a voyage of discovery and to learn more about what archaeology is all about and how it contributes to our understanding of the past. So start planning your Festival fortnight NOW!
