The Big Dig

23rd, 24th & 25th July 2021

We are working closely with the local community to organise a community archaeological excavation in Scarborough Old Town, the heart of medieval Scarborough. The excavation will consist of up to 25 small trenches located in gardens and public open spaces. We want to discover evidence for the Big Ideas that made Scarborough such an important place in the past.

There will be a Hands on Our Future, Hands on Our Past Hub in Scarborough Market Hall. This will bring together the community excavation and cutting-edge technology to look at Scarborough’s incredible past and its exciting future. There will be a series of exciting activities that budding archaeologists of all ages can take part in.
