Festival of Leicestershire and Rutland Archaeology 2019

We are delighted to hear that the CBA’s Festival of Archaeology will run again this year, from 13-28 July. Following a year off in 2018, it is hoped that the 2019 Festival will be bigger and better, and it will form part of the 75th anniversary of the Council for British Archaeology. Work is currently underway to update and improved the Festival’s website which will launch sometime this month. Further information at

In 2018, the Festival of Leicestershire and Rutland Archaeology was a huge success, despite the absence of national support. We will of course be running our own festival again in 2019 in conjunction with the national festival and we also aim to be bigger and better than last year, for the first time spreading events across the full month.
