European Archaeology Days

This event is related to the sections: Workshops and laboratories

Demonstrations and workshops for children

Since 2010, the French Ministry of Culture has placed the co-ordination and promotion of France’s National Archaeology Days (JNA) in the heands of the National Institute for Preventive Archaeological Research (Inrap).

The Archaeology Days, always held the third weekend in June, all those involved in archaeology are mobilised to introduce the public to the treasures of their national heritage and the secrets of the profession.

In 2019, the National Archaeology Days will celebrate their tenth anniversary. And in order to share this 10th Edition with the widest possible audience, Inrap has chosen to open up these days to every European country.

These three days will be used to raise awareness and familiarise European audiences with all aspects of archaeology. A range of original and festive events will be organised, to allow families, schools, students, history enthusiasts or the merely curious to discover their archaeological heritage. Visits to places that are not normally open to the public (excavation sites, research centres, archaeological collections, etc.), meetings with archaeological professionals (archaeologists, researchers, etc.), who will be describing their profession to the public, along with a range of entertaining and educational activities (an introduction to excavation, demonstrations, workshops, etc.), are just some of the wide variety of programmes available at the Archaeology Days across Europe.


The National Archaeological Museum of Cagliari organizes, in collaboration with Sémata Cooperative Society, three days of workshops and free demonstration activities dedicated to children between the ages of 6 and 11.

A different activity will be proposed every day.

The first workshop is entitled "Sacred and profane fire: lights on Rome" and it will be held on Friday 14th June.

The programme for the following days includes:

- "Stilo and styles: the school in the Roman age" on Saturday, 15 June;

- "Tiles: fashion and mosaics in the Roman world" on Sunday, 16 June.
