From flints used by Stone Age hunters to Tudor pottery to bullets from rifles from World War II - over the years, archaeologists have discovered some truly amazing things beneath Bradgate Park.

Come along to the park from 11am-3pm on Wednesday 19th July for a jam-packed day of archaeological activity inspired by the history of Bradgate, as part of the Leicestershire and Rutland Festival of Archaeology. Have a go at Tudor and Medieval crafts in the Ruins, and make tools like a Stone Age hunter beside the spot where Stone Age people once camped - plus you'll have the chance to literally get your hands on some history and become an archaeologist for the day at the Visitor Centre.

Throughout the day, we'll be running various activities throughout the Park which will come with a small charge. 


Entry is free and booking is not required, but there will be a small charge for some activities. Please note that parking charges will apply: see charges here.


Date: Wednesday 19th July 2023
