Live Dig at Les Varines - Open Daily (excluding Saturdays)
Come and see the latest work of the Ice Age team as we continue our live archaeology at Les Varines.
Open every day (except Saturdays) you can come and take a look at a dig in progress, watch the experts as they work at this vitally important Ice Age site. While you are there take a look at our Pop Up Museum with artwork from Hautlieu students and information about the dig and the Ice Age Project. The project benefits from a solar rig, supported by Jersey Electricity, which means experts can work in the field in all weathers cataloguing finds.
There is no parking at Les Varines, so please use the shuttle bus service from La Hougue Bie. This service runs throughout the day at regular intervals (there is no cost for the bus but donations are gratefully recieved).
Bus Service and Tours
Free bus running from La Hougue Bie at 11am, 12pm, 2pm, and 3pm every day except Saturdays, for guided tours of the excavation site.
There will be an open day on Sunday 5th of August with talks from the archaeologists, more buses running all day and other activities. Check back here for more information.
