Holyrood Park is home to nationally important archaeological sites dating back thousands of years. Kids can meet some of the archaeologists responsible for looking after these precious and fragile archaeological remains, hear first-hand about exciting research projects and take a walk around the park to visit a real dig taking place.

Families will also get the chance to get hands on with activities such as a mock archaeology dig, handling boxes, trying on Roman armour, and clay pot making.
