Friday 9 August, 5pm - Programme

  • 5pm: Refreshments and canapes, mix and mingle
  • 6pm: Dr Sophie Kay – “Time Team: When Archaeology Met Family History”
    It’s now thirty years since Time Team first brought the wonderful world of archaeology to UK screens and beyond, with their celebrated approach of having ‘only three days’ to explore each dig location reaching millions of viewers around the world.
    2023 marked a new milestone for the programme, when it introduced family history research as a means to investigate the historical narratives of the people and communities associated with the dig location. Armed with images and insights from the programme, Time Team’s ‘Ancestry and Genealogy Expert’, Dr. Sophie Kay, will take attendees behind the scenes of the show, providing a sneak peek into what happens when the worlds of family history and archaeology collide!
  • 7pm: Family History Friday's LIVE!
    Family History Friday’s LIVE! with Jason Reeve (Ancestry AU & NZ - platinum sponsor).
  • 8pm: Q&A session
