Archaeology on Stage

13 July 2018

Our very own cultural heritage officer, Catherine Parker Heath, will be live on stage at Buxton Opera House as part of Buxton International Festival this Sunday (15th July) with Tony Robinson and his Time Team colleagues. In a show entitled Digging up the Past, Tony Robinson and friends will share the secrets of how the telly switched a nation on to archaeology.

Tickets are available from the Buxton Opera House website.

Catherine will be talking about what makes great archaeology in the Peak District and how volunteers are helping to uncover the secret history of the living landscape of the South West Peak.
