Archaeologists are coming to dig at Pontefract Castle and you can join the dig team!

Always wanted to try archaeology? We’re on a mission to find the castle’s old gatehouse, and unearth the secrets of Pontefract’s past. Book your Dig Experience now to join the dig team!

Our friendly team of archaeologists from DigVentures will show you how to excavate, identify different archaeological layers, and spot important archaeological features in the ground.

You’ll get to try a bit of digging, and learn what to do when you make a discovery. By the end, you’ll have got a proper taste of archaeology, while actually helping to unearth the town’s medieval history… what could be more exciting than that?!
