About Us

DIG offers you a unique archaeological adventure to get you on your way to becoming a real archaeologist! Owned by the same archaeologists who discovered the Viking-Age City and created JORVIK Viking Centre, this is a one of a kind experience! So… DIG IT! SHAKE IT! SEE IT! FEEL IT! FIND IT!

“One of the best family days out. No other experience gets you as close to the excitement of archaeological discovery.” The One Show’s Dan Snow.

At DIG, you get to discover only the most exciting archaeological artefacts from the 2000 years of history hidden under the streets of York. Our four excavation pits are filled with Roman, Viking, medieval and Victorian finds, so you can grab a trowel and dig up the clues that show how people lived in these times.

DIG has re-opened. You can pre-book online or by calling 01904615505.

Please visit our website for information on accessibility.

Educational visits (Covid-19 secure)

We are delighted to offer Covid-19 secure school visits, which comply with all of the requirements of the We're Good To Go certification so that educational groups can continue to enjoy hands-on archaeology. This includes offering exclusive use of the DIG building for your visit to maintain 'bubbles'. Contact our Reservations department directly by phone (01904 615505) or email for details.

If you want an interactive archaeological experience but are unable to visit at the moment, we have created a Virtual Outreach programme which brings archaeologists into your classroom using virtual meeting technology. For more details, click here.
