Loan Boxes


Bring the Tudor period to your classroom with one of our Loan Boxes! Our Tudor Loan Box contains real and replica artefacts that can be used to compliment a visit to Barley Hall and to aid a study on medieval and Tudor times at school. Learn more about our Loan Boxes here.

The boxes cost £24 each for the first week, followed by £6 for each additional week up to a maximum of six weeks. Loan boxes have to be collected and returned to DIG: An Archaeological Adventure. Unfortunately we cannot send the boxes via post or courier.

If you would like to book or view a loan box please email our Reservations team at schools@yorkat.co.uk or phone 01904 615505.
