The Big Dig

The Mobile Outdoor Archaeological Museum - THE BIG DIG, came to our school, on Wednesday 17th and Thursday 18th November to work with the third classes.

The Big Dig is an interactive archaeological excavation which offers a hands-on experience, giving children an opportunity to explore Ireland’s past with the help of a friendly team of qualified archaeologists. The children got the opportunity to experience what it is like to be an archaeologist and to work on a simulated and controlled archaeology dig.


All the children had a fantastic time and learned a lot.
