All over the Netherlands
The archaeology days are three days in the year (in October) in which the general public can experience all the aspects that make archaeology interesting and fun. The days bring the past to life and offer a unique opportunity for the public to see what is and was hidden in the Dutch soil.
Everybody who is involved in Dutch archaeology, from museums to volunteer organizations is invited to open their doors and taking the public with them into the wondrous world of archaeology. From workshops in pottery determination to participating in real excavations and from archaeological hiking trips to plays and lectures.
The main goal of the National Archaeology Days is the public outreach of archaeology in the Netherlands. We are dedicated to make Dutch archaeology accessible and interesting for the general public, so that everybody can experience what this exciting science has to offer.
