Heritage Week: Children’s Outdoor Archaeology Workshops


Free of charge


10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Kilkenny Castle

Get hands-on with history! This National Heritage Week join Explore Archaeology to discover Kilkenny Castle’s medieval past and hold history in your hands.

Did you know that Elizabeth 1st’s great grandmother was born in Kilkenny Castle?!
Explore Archaeology will bring the 15th & 16th C to life through our interactive (and most importantly, fun!) archaeology workshops – combining living history, Tudor archaeology and a medieval heraldry activity (where children can make, and take home, their own shield with their coat of arms)

Perfect for children aged 5 – 12, 6 workshops will be delivered by archaeologists from 10am until 4pm and will run for an hour. These workshops are bookable in advance by emailing  or in person on the day!
