The School of Irish Archaeology is coming to Navan, their replica ‘Viking House’ excavation is designed for children five to 12 years who will explore the Viking world through an archaeological dig.

This simulated excavation offers children an opportunity to experience what it is like to be an archaeologist by learning how to excavate the remains of a Viking house. During their dig for Viking treasures and artefacts, they also learn about the lifestyles of their Viking ancestors, guided by our team of professional working archaeologists.
