Meet the Experts, Dig to Display

Have you ever wondered how archaeological finds make their way from dig to display?

Join the Conservation team from York Archaeological Trust as they explain the techniques they use to investigate and stabilise archaeological objects. From waterlogged organic materials like leather to metals you will discover the procedures and treatments that allow important finds from the past to be displayed for the enjoyment of all.

With opportunities to handle real artefacts and the chance to get up close on the microscope and try identifying materials, this is a unique archaeological experience.

Sessions run: 10:00 – 12:00 & 13:00 – 15:00

Please note: Random bag searches will be in operation throughout JORVIK Viking Festival. We thank you for your co-operation.
