Next Bank Holiday Monday, May 26, Tattershall Castle is holding an archaeology day with something for all the family.

Archaeology Uncovered is a chance for adults and children to learn about the art of digging, recording and analysing history in 
the ground and have fun as well.

On site will be the National Trust’s regional Archaeologist, Rachael Hall, as well as other experts in the fields of illustration, small finds and bones.

There will be hands-on activities for the children to have a go at and visitors will have a unique opportunity to examine some of the artefacts dug up during the moat excavations of 1912-14.

These finds date from the mediaeval castle all the way through to the 20th century when the castle was an abandoned ruin and visited by day trippers wanting to see the views from the top.

The activities are free to do but normal admission applies.
