An Archaeological Discovery
Get involved on an Archaeological Dig!
Archaeology Live! has been hosted by the Hungate excavations since 2007, but it is now time to move on to a new site. For details of the 2014 Archaeology Live! training excavations please click here
The Hungate excavation is the biggest ever archaeological dig in York city centre. The archaeologists have been uncovering 2000 years in the life of York and work is continuing in stages as the development moves forward.
Hungate is a unique dig where you can come and see the past unfolding in front of your eyes, where new discoveries are made every day.
The Hungate area lies to the east of York city centre, adjacent to the River Foss.
