Hands On at the Festival of Leicestershire and Rutland Archaeology

Get out and explore your local community!

The Festival of Leicestershire and Rutland Archaeology, part of the CBA’s national Festival of Archaeology, is back! with events taking place across the two Counties between 29th June and 31st July 2024

Archaeology is all about people and how we explore and interpret the past. Archaeology has a unique ability to bring people from all walks of life together through our shared sense of community – what it meant in the past, what it means to us now, and how we can shape our future.

This July, celebrate the rich and diverse heritage of Leicestershire and Rutland. Uncover the stories, sites, buildings, places and people that make our local communities special. Go to new places and revisit old one. Discover and share the history and archaeology that is all around us.

The Festival in Leicestershire and Rutland is financially supported by: Leicestershire Fieldworkers; Leicestershire Archaeological and Historical Society; Leicestershire and Rutland Heritage Forum; CBA East Midlands; Leicestershire Industrial History Society; The Friends of Jewry Wall Museum; Hinckley Archaeological Society; University of Leicester Archaeological Services.
