As part of the Festival of British Archaeology, Archaeology here at Southampton will be hosting a day of hands-on activities and demonstrations on Saturday 23rd July.
We are planning lots for everyone to do, take part in and/or watch, including:
- Prehistoric butchery
- Medieval shipwrighting using our axe collection
- Cave art
- Human bones
- Prehistoric metallurgy demonstration
- Flint knapping and axe making
- Human Origins and a chance to meet the monkey men!
- Maritime archaeology
Events will be running from 10am to 4pm at Avenue Campus (just off Highfield Road, SO17 1BF – plenty of parking available onsite).
