The 2012 third annual family archaeology event was a great success with around 300 people of all ages enjoying the archaeology, traditional crafts, talks and children’s activities. With lots of help and support from our wonderful volunteers – and assisted by a largely sunny day – everyone seemed to have a really enjoyable time.

Many people had travelled some distance to visit the event and found much of interest – whether it was discovering more about the history of Warmington and surrounding settlements, learning archaeological skills or finding out about the life of an Anglo-Saxon.

The event showed it is possible to make history appeal to people of all interests and ages.

This is a really exciting time for Warmington Heritage Group, and the archaeology is uncovering some really surprising and challenging finds – watch this space!
