The Festival of Archaeology goes online, 11-19 July
The Council for British Archaeology’s Festival is going digital next week. It is still hoped to run the main festival from 24 October to 1 November, pandemic permitting.
Meanwhile, there are already over 100 events listed for the next week. To see what is available, go to https://festival.
