Festival of Archaeology 25 years logo

In July we've got lots of talks and hands-on activities as part of the Festival of Archaeology - see the listings below for details.

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.

If you are aged 8-17 then you might also be interested in the Young Archaeologists' Club.

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