Welcome to

Archaeology Live

Join experts from York Archaeology as we explore the history below ground in York, Nottingham and Sheffield! Archaeology Live 2022 runs from Saturday 1 until Sunday 9 October 2022.

About the event

Archaeology helps us understand the stories of the past, of the people who walked this land before us, how they lived and died, and how that shaped the places that are familiar to us today.

Building on the success of our inaugural 2021 festival, this year we’re bringing you more videos, more in-person events, and of course, more spectacular archaeology from York, Sheffield, and Nottingham!

We will be adding a host of new content throughout the week, so bookmark this page to explore a little deeper!

About the event

Archaeology helps us understand the stories of the past, of the people who walked this land before us, how they lived and died, and how that shaped the places that are familiar to us today. This summer, York Archaeology and The JORVIK Group are hosting a series of events including more videos, more in-person events, and of course more about fascinating archaeological gems in York, Sheffield and Nottingham. We’ll be heading below ground in York Minster, into the hidden river culverts of Sheffield and into the caves of Nottingham Castle for some exclusive tours, and also showing how some aspects of archaeology can be done without ever putting a shovel into the ground at Wollaton Hall.
