I have found out about this event via Pat Hadley’s blog.
The first Day of Archaeology was held in 2011. Contributors were asked to send in diary entries showing how they were involved in Archaeology on July 29th, the Day of Archaeology. If not actually active on that day, anything a week before or after could count. There were over 400 contributors in all.
This year the day chosen is the 29th of June. It occurs to me that if you are already planning to come along to the next West Yorkshire Heritage Forum event on the 30th June in Hebden Bridge, there is an activity which can be written up and contributed as part of the Day of Archaeology.
