The Great British Archaeology Comic Book

The Great British Archaeology Comic Book: Picture the Past, Present and Future.

As part of this year’s Festival of Archaeology, the Young Archaeologists Club created the Great British Archaeology Comic Book – drawn by you!

You send us drawings on the theme of ‘what do you picture when you think of archaeology?’. Everything from digging a trench, walking the fields looking for artefacts, working in the lab and even presenting on TV!  from famous sites like Hadrian’s Wall or Offa’s Dyke and amazing objects like the Mold Cape and Pictish carved stones.

We then worked with a professional illustrator who has woven the illustrations into an exciting story that has now been turned into a full-blown comic as we speak!
