    York Archaeological Trust?s annual training excavation. The dig is set in the centre of York and offers trainees the chance to work with professional archaeologists and to learn and practice the various techniques of archaeological excavation. During Archaeology Live!, the archaeology is entirely excavated and recorded by the trainees with assistance and advice from the trainers. It is a field-based training programme where people learn by doing, making exciting discoveries in a location famous for its wealth of archaeology. 2016 will be our third season of excavation taking place in the grounds of All Saints, North Street ? one of York?s finest medieval churches. Alongside the chance to learn more about this historic building, the team will be continuing to build upon the story of the church?s grounds. So far we have found extensive evidence including finds and features from the Victorian, medieval, Viking and Roman periods. People of all ages (14+) and experience levels are welcome, with training fitted to suit individual requirements. It is a chance for the public to get behind the scenes and in the thick of an archaeological dig, to learn from professionals and add new knowledge to York?s amazing history.
