What activity(ies) should be proposed for the Archaeology Days
The objective of the event is to reach as many people as
possible. But above all, it is a question of bringing in an
audience that does not usually visit places dedicated to
archaeology. To do this, making the venues free by offering
exceptional activities at the same time helps to attract new
audiences and mobilize the media. In addition, a specific and
festive event aimes at both adults and families attracts the
public who are not necessarily used to visiting a place
dedicated to archaeology.
Exceptional opening of spaces closed to the public
Opening a preventive archaeology site, a restoration workshop or
archaeological reserves is a good way to bring archaeology
professionals together with the public. He appreciates being
able to meet professionals, and to see and understand how they
work and it also shows that archaeology is a operational
sequence that does not stop at the excavation site alone.
