Archaeology in Family Program

An activity for all

If you intend to introduce Archaeology as a great family activity, or if you would like to promote and amplify your relative's sensibility towards Archaeological Heritage, or if you would just like to enjoy a completely different activity in nature, here's your chance to make it come true!

The archaeologist's "Archive" is the earth that holds a forgotten heritage at times hard to identify. With the proper methodology we can recover and understand the same. We want all parents along with their kids to enjoy a unforgettable experience, together with our archaeologists and students all of whom participate in Pintia Project.

Due to the concurrence of other activities during the same dates, this year one shift only is established during July 2024, with a maximum of 6 participants per shift, to be held during the days 19, 20 and 21.
