Fodor's Review

This venture from the people behind the Jorvik Viking Centre is a great way to get young people inspired about history and archaeology. It's a reproduction of an archaeological dig in and beneath an old church; kids, supervised by knowledgeable experts, dig in the dirt and "find" Roman or Viking artifacts. After your exploration, head to the lab to learn what archaeological finds discovered on the site reveal about former inhabitants.
