Coin Hoard Tour

Wednesday, 31 May at La Hougue Bie

Join us on a tour of the new Discovering Celts exhibition. Find out some of the new discoveries we have made about the coin hoard and how the coins were cleaned. There will also be the chance to handle real objects from the period as well as make your own Celtic coin.



Archaeological dig

July, date to be confirmed, at Les Varines

Have you ever wondered what actually happens at an archaeological dig? In this special session, meet a real-life archaeologist who is currently conducting a dig in Jersey. Have the opportunity to ask questions about Jersey’s Ice Age and  help to identify finds.
