The Festival of Archaeology is a triennial event organized by the Association of Portuguese Archaeologists in Carmo Archaeological Museum in Lisbon in cooperation with the main public and private institutions in the sector - state bodies, associations, universities, museums aimed at spreading the archaeological activity in its multiple facets, with the general public and families with children and young people in particular.

In 2016 the Festival of Archaeology takes place on 4 and 5 June, with as main theme Experimental Archaeology. In this brief journey into the past through archaeology, visitors will have the opportunity to contact expert archaeologists and to experience how our ancestors from the Palaeolithic to more recent times lived and what they did. We invite visitors to participate in workshops, in old games, watching a piece of Roman theatre, seeing small shows, and many other activities.
Do not miss this little trip in the time machine!
The Festival is free and open to all interested between 10:00h and 19:00h.
