National Archaeology Week 12th - 20th July 2008

10am - 4pm

Entry to the event is free, but there is a car park charge (Denbighshire County Council)

National Archaeology Week is aimed at families throughout the UK, and is organised by the Council for British Archaeology and the Young Archaeologists’ Club. For National Archaeology Week this year, the Clwyd-Powys Archaeological Trust are joining Denbighshire County Council and local branches of the Young Archaeologists’ Club at Loggerheads Country Park, near Mold.

There will be lots of activities throughout the day, so there will be plenty for children and adults to see and do. The Samhain re-enactment group will also be there all day demonstrating ways of life in the early medieval period, including fighting and cookery.
