Archaeology is for everyone. We all have heritage, and we all draw on the past in our lives every single day. The past does not belong to universities; nor does it belong to archaeologists. Every single one of us has a story to tell.

Archaeology and Ale

Our monthly informal talk at the Red Deer pub in Sheffield is open free of charge to everyone with an interest in archaeology. You can also listen to each talk as a podcast hosted by the Archaeology Podcast Network.

The Woodland Heritage Festival

Our favourite part of every year is the Woodland Heritage Festival in Ecclesall Woods. Our digital festival from 2020 is still live!

School visits

Archaeology in the City offers a range of free outreach activity sessions and courses for students of all ages. You can visit us, we can visit you, or we can go on a field trip.
