TREASURED ISLANDS!! Rediscovering William Aislabie’s Quebec

County: North Yorkshire

Sat 23 July 14.30-16.30

The Treasured Islands project is the latest, largest and most exciting archaeological project taking place in the Georgian gardens of Studley Royal – also know as “The Wonder of the North”.

Come and explore the site as archaeologists start their work, piecing together the historic “treasure maps” with other clues in the landscape. Have a go at pin pointing the lost islands yourself – and meet Redcoat Soldiers, fresh from their heroic adventures at the Battle of Quebec (after which the garden was named). Learn more about the site and the secrets it holds from our brand new innovative on-site exhibition.

Visit us again in September to see if you were right, archaeological excavations explore what remains of this unique garden!
