This year we are celebrating 20 years of inspiring events, which have been encouraging people all around the UK to take an active interest in archaeology and the historic environment around them. 2010 will see our biggest celebration of archaeology yet and we want you to be involved!

There are plenty of opportunities for you to take part in the Festival of British Archaeology. Events are held at a huge variety of venues, with a vast array of formats and themes. Holding events during this special fortnight presents an excellent opportunity for you to promote your work, engage with your local communities and help everyone to engage with archaeology and the wider historic environment.

The Festival is co-ordinated by the Council for British Archaeology and is entirely reliant on the participation and support of heritage groups, societies and organisations around the UK.

The dedicated Organiser Information section of the Festival website has all the information you need to get you started: - Festival Background - Event Guidelines - Event Ideas

To register an event fill in the registration form and return by 19/03/2010.

If you wish to discuss the Festival in more detail, or if you are interested in finding out more about the Council for British Archaeology, please do not hesitate to contact Sophie Cringle at CBA..

We do hope you will join us in celebrating the Festival of British Archaeology 2010 and look forward to receiving details of your event(s). Please do pass this information on to your colleagues.
