Festival of Archaeology 2021

This year, we teamed up once more with Council for British Archaeology for their Festival of Archaeology. Working together, we delivered four activity days for young people across the country.

Photography & Archaeology, Boslover Castle

Unfortunately we had to delay our final activity of the the 2021 Festival of Archaeology and it ended up takin place in 2022! Our final event saw photography take over Bolsover Castle, again overseen by an experienced photographer and like the event at Wrest Park, it explored the links between archaeology, photography and the natural world.

We took part in a number of creative photography challenges within the grounds and buildings of Bolsover Castle in Derbyshire. With spectacular views over Derbyshire, the fairy-tale Stuart mansion, Bolsover Castle, was designed to entertain and impress. The buildings vary from the lavish rooms of the Little Castle, to the riding school and the ruined terrace range.

“Such a great opportunity for young people when there is usually less focus on them… Perfect venue choice too!”
