Only 4 days to go until the 2016 Woodland Heritage Festival – a free family archaeology and heritage festival organised by Archaeology in the City, from the University of Sheffield Department of Archaeology, and held at the JG Graves Woodland Discovery Centre in Ecclesall Woods.
Here’s a flashback to the free talks that were on offer last year.
Today, it’s Virtual Archaeology with Courtenay – you can visit the Festival this Monday 30th and handle some real artefacts (and make some of your own!), but for now learn about how archaeologists make digital replicas of real artefacts, and even artefacts which have been destroyed, with last year’s podcast, hosted on the Archaeology Podcast Network.
This year we will have two English history talks, but also all of the fun hands-on archaeology activities that we had last year – osteology, ceramics, zooarchaeology, iron smelting, copper-working, plus some extra family-friendly bone (soap) carving and cave (paper) painting stations and a landscape archaeology scavenger hunt.
