European archaeology days 2024, there is place for children too

From June 14 to 16, 2024, the European Archaeology Days will take place across Europe, coordinated by the French Institut National de Recherches Archéologiques Préventives (INRAP), with the support of the French Ministry of Culture and the Council of Europe. The event will feature guided tours, excavation site openings, workshops, excursions, and other cultural initiatives at various cultural venues in Italy.

The days aim to foster ongoing dialogue with visitors, universities, local authorities, and associations. Numerous activities are planned for children, who in many sites and cities will have free access to the sites.

Since 2010, INRAP has coordinated the national Archaeology Days in France, involving excavation operators, research institutes, museums, and other stakeholders to promote archaeological heritage to the public. Since 2020, these have become the European Archaeology Days, expanding to 26 European countries in 2021 and 30 in 2022. With its 2,200 staff, INRAP is Europe’s leading archaeological research operator, significantly contributing to archaeological and historical knowledge.

Among the countries participating in the 2024 edition there are: Albania, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, North Macedonia, Malta, Montenegro, Norway, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, United Kingdom, Czech Republic, Romania, San Marino, Scotland, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland.

The European Archaeology Days aim to raise awareness among European citizens about cultural diversity, making archaeology more visible through interactive and educational events. The goal is also to attract new audiences and enhance the entire archaeological process from excavation to museum, promoting knowledge-sharing among professionals and European citizens.
