Day of Archaeology project

Have you ever wondered what archaeologists really get up to? Is it all just digging or is there a lot more to it? The Day of Archaeology project aims to give you a window into the daily lives of archaeologists from all over the world. The first ever Day of Archaeology in 2011 had over 400 contributing archaeologists who made posts on the project website, from those working in the field through to specialists working in laboratories and behind computers, and their posts chronicled what they did on one day, July 29th 2011. This date was chosen to coincide with the Festival of British Archaeology, which runs annually in July.

This year, our very own Annie Partridge contributed to the project with a post about A Town Unearthed and her Community Archaeology Training Placement with Canterbury Archaeological Trust.
