We are incredibly lucky in Britain to be surrounded by history and archaeology, and there are many opportunities to learn more, both locally and nationally. A number of Albion Archaeology staff members are involved in local societies, in running young archaeology clubs and in collaborations with Bedford Museum and other local organisations. Listed below are some of the upcoming events and talks involving the Albion Archaeology team and our partner organisations.
There are no upcoming Albion Archaeology events currently.
The next Young Archaeologists' Club sessions will be on Saturday 15th September (finds identification) and Saturday 20th October (finds drawing and photography) . To get involved, contact the Bedford YAC team.
