Public Open Days at Bradgate Park Excavation

This weekend ULAS are opening up their ongoing excavations in Bradgate Park to the public.

Over the autumn and winter archaeologists from University of Leicester Archaeological Services are excavating an internationally significant Late Upper Palaeolithic open-air site in the park.

Tomorrow, Saturday 5rd December, and on Sunday 6th December the team will be on site between 10am and 4pm working, talking about their discoveries and giving hourly tours of the excavations. So why not pop in for a visit and see what they’ve been up to.

On Saturday, there will also be a Christmas Fair in the park with local produce, arts & crafts, demonstrations, Morris Dancers, Sealed Knot re-enactors, a brass band and much more!

Visit the Bradgate Park website for details.

Please not that there is a car parking charge (Pay & Display).
