archaeologist showing recently discovered items to people

Meet our archaeologists, see our latest finds and find out more about the history of your local area in our free events run by the Museum of Liverpool's archaeology department.

In July we've got a special display of finds made during the Rainford's Roots project, plus lots of special events as part of the Festival of Archaeology - see below for details.

There's more to see in the Museum of Liverpool's History Detectives gallery too.
