Details

Bring your budding archaeologists along to a fascinating family workshop at Pontefract Castle.

See some of the treasures that were uncovered during last year's excavations, follow a trail around the grounds and find out more about the archaeology of this historically important castle.

There are plenty of activities to keep the family entertained; little visitors can have a go at digging for their own amazing finds, try their hand at making pots or creating brooches.
