Calling all budding archaeologists! Cheddar Gorge & Caves are taking part in the annual Festival of Archaeology, which is organised by the British Council of Archaeology with 1000s of events taking part across the UK.

 

They’ve got special activities planned to help everyone get inspired and involved with all things archaeological.

 

After venturing through the mysterious depths of Gough’s Cave and discovering the world-famous Cheddar Man – Britain’s oldest nearly complete skeleton – you can find out much more in their special exhibition. Featuring all the latest pioneering research from the Natural History Museum and the University College London revealing the face of Cheddar Man (as seen on Channel 4 earlier this year).

 

There's the chance for children to get hands-on making their very own clay thumb pots, dressing-up as prehistoric hunter-gathers and digging through their sand trays discovering artefacts. Make sure you also explore their Museum of Prehistory, you’ll find lots more information and objects unearthed in the Cheddar area, that help to tell the story of how our ancestors lived tens of thousands of years ago. 

 

All activities are included in your Explorer Day Ticket book online and save 15%.

Tickets

Adult £19.95 and Child £14.95
