Archaeology-inspired play!

At Archaeodiscovery we use our professional experience and creative thinking to bring archaeology to you. Through the wonder of discovery we can help you investigate the past.

Our playful and participatory approach involves as many people as possible in what we do. And our programme promotes confidence, well-being, imagination and curiosity.

Become part of the action by seeing, feeling and playing with archaeological materials and techniques.

What got Flick into archaeology? … apart from watching Jurassic Park when she was 9 years old?

Flick always loved history and spent most of her childhood in the sand pit! As soon as she could, she studied archaeology at university.

That was 20 years ago and she's been a professional archaeologist ever since.

She doesn't regret it one bit!


Odile was obsessed with mythology as a child and that made her want to find out more about past civilisations as she grew up! Because she couldn’t study archaeology in France, she went to York to do her degree. Since then she has worked on excavations in France, England, Ireland and even Kazakhstan!

But as much as Odile loves archaeology, she thinks it’s a shame it can be hard for ordinary people to experience it.

"Our aim is to spark wonder in the world around us, through play, exploration, and archaeology. We're here to encourage the curious thinkers of the future!"
