CBA Festival of Archaeology 2020

Owing to the Covid-19 problems the CBA Festival of Archaeology 2020 has been divided into two parts: a digital section in July and an on the ground event from 24 October – 1 November. The CBA has now altered the second part to “a mix of digital and on-the-ground events”.

The EMAS Archaeological Society has therefore decided to present a quiz about lesser known archaeological sites in South England.

The quiz will draw 12 questions from a database. Each time you try the quiz it will be different!

At the end of the quiz you will be presented with the answers and a link for further information about each site.

We hope that you will find the quiz entertaining, and that the answers may lead to you visiting these sites once things return to normal.
