Childrens Viking Dig at Gallowshill
The Children’s Big Viking Dig will return to Gallows Hill for Heritage Week and European Year of Culture 2018. The School of Irish Archaeology will recreate a replica ‘Viking House’ and excavation site where children can explore the Viking world through a simulated archaeology dig.
This site is specially constructed on the grounds of participating schools and event centres, and it gives children the chance to experience the life of an archaeologist by learning how to excavate the remains of a Viking house. The Big Dig experience is suited for children aged 5 to 12 years of age. As they dig through the site, children will unearth Viking treasures and artefacts dating back 1,000 years. They will learn about the lives of our Viking ancestors as history is brought to life by qualified archaeologists. The childrens dig will run alongside the Gallowshill excavation.
Booking will be taken from 19th July at Waterford County Museum
