Do you have a budding archaeologist aged between eight and 16 in the house?

Fulham Palace is launched a Young Archaeologist club which six fascinating sessions lined up from February through till summer, with the first session answering the question - What is an Archaeologist?

Meeting monthly on Saturday mornings, the club will explore the fascinating world of archaeology through practical hands on sessions with real archaeologists.

Kids will have the chance to dig, sieve, measure and record your finds  learning about ancient civilisations such as the Romans, Vikings and Stone Age. There will be a huge range of sessions on offer, everything from dendrochronology to investigating historic buildings, making traditional crafts to exploring the local Thames foreshore.

21st Feb: What is an Archaeologist?
