Celebrate Scottish Archaeology Month and drop in to our parkaeology event in Holyrood Park.

Holyrood is home to nationally important archaeological sites dating back thousands of years. Meet some of the archaeologists responsible for looking after these precious and fragile archaeological remains, hear first-hand about exciting research projects and have a go at hands-on activities.

There's even an opportunity to visit our dig taking place in the park!

Free event, no booking required.
