Worcestershire County Museum at Hartlebury Castle is holding a family friendly archaeology themed day on Sunday 16 July as part of the national Festival of Archaeology.

'Dig It!' will run from 11am-4pm on Sunday 16 July and promises to be great family fun with lots of hands on activities.

Families can have a go at metal detecting and learn how to use a trowel to dig for archaeological finds. Children will enjoy making fossil imprints in clay to take home, and all visitors can try looking through microscopes with our archaeologist to identify different seeds and find out more about the lives of people in the past. There is also a great 'Dig It' interactive explorer trail to follow around the museum.

Museum Events Officer Pippa Ashmore said, "If you've always wondered what it is like to be a real archaeologist come and get hands on with history and help the museum celebrate the national Festival of Archaeology."
