Archaeological Sites & Roman Sites in England

Archaeological sites

Digging deep into history is one of the most fascinating ways to understand our past. If you fancy getting your hands dirty, you can get some hands-on-trowel action at participatory digs in prehistory, Iron Age, Roman and Saxon archaeological sites. Unearth a Viking bone spoon, discover Ice Age rock art or take in the ambience of a hill fort encampment dig at one of the many Roman sites in England. For a more relaxed take on history, dip into the contemporary spa amenities available at sumptuously restored Roman baths. History is part of the present in England!
