“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.
