Charterhouse Square

The Charterhouse is working in partnership with Crossrail, its contractors BFK and MOLA, and the Museum of London and the London Borough of Islington to host the community dig during the Festival of Archaeology from 18th to 25th July.

The Charterhouse will open the archaeology excavations to public viewing on 24 and 25 July and will include opportunities for children to take part in specially constructed archaeology dig boxes not associated with the burial ground (pre-booking of children’s dig boxes events required).

There are daily opportunities for the general public to join the dig and we have programmed other activities including lectures, an introduction to archaeology for families and tours of the Charterhouse.  To book for specific events click here.
