Council for British Archaeology Festival of Archaeology 2021 – Register Now!

YOU CAN NOW REGISTER YOUR EVENT FOR THE 2021 FESTIVAL OF ARCHAEOLOGY

It’s easy! 

Simply head to our website to create an Organiser Account. This is completely free and takes a matter of seconds. Once you’ve done that, you can register your event.

There’s no deadline to register, but we encourage you to do so sooner rather than later, so we can give your event as much promotion as possible.

This year we are also sharing resources such as self guided walks, competitions and craft activities. This enables audiences to take part in their own time and to their own ability, even from the comfort of their own home. Find out more about our new Resource Area below.
