    Final Broadway Dig Open Day

    • 15th February 2017

    Our Broadway dig is coming to an end, so we are holding a final open day on Monday, 20th February from 10:30-15:00. Come along and visit the excavation, talk to our archaeologists, handle some of the finds, and find out about the fascinating history of the area.

    We have got evidence of some of Broadway’s earliest known residents: Mesolithic hunter-gatherers living around 10,000 years ago; and some intriguing and unusual Bronze Age finds dating back over 4000 years. The main focus of the site is a complex Iron Age and Roman settlement, with fantastic Roman finds emerging.

    Car parking is not available on-site so please use the public car park on Childswickham Road (off Cheltenham Road). The site is a 5-minute walk from the car park via footpaths from Cheltenham Road (see map below).

    Stout footwear is advised, as the site and the footpaths may be muddy! Visitors should gather by the entrance to the site, where artefacts will be on display. Tours of the site will be conducted by our archaeologists.

    There is no need to book – just drop in and find out more about the thousands of years of history beneath your feet!
