The Archaeology Legacy Project wants to connect young people with the archaeology on their doorstep and bring their studies alive through the wonder of archaeological discovery.

Oxford Archaeology are working with National Highways, one of the UK’s largest funders of development-led archaeology, to evaluate existing resources and design a new, digitally innovative educational package. Archaeology has a lot to teach us about the past, but it can also inform our future. From learning about how people in the past adapted to climate change, to how they interacted with other cultures through migration and trade.



Thank you to everyone who participated in our public consultation.

We have been blown away by the passion and interest of educators in using archaeology as part of young people's education. Not only have you demonstrated the value of archaeology, but you have inspired us with your creativity and determination to provide access. Your insights have informed our recommendations and we are currently working with National Highways to apply for the next stage of the project, which will be focused on designing the details of this excting and ambitious education resource package.
