Well despite the recent challenges we're now good to go to reopen our site to visiting schools. During the school holiday period we will be running family activities for a small number of people. Staff continue to work from home so should you wish to contact the Ancient Technology Centre please call 01725 517618 and leave a message. This will be picked up remotely.
We are an outdoor education centre operated by Dorset Council providing historical experiences, linked to the national curriculum. This includes day and residential school visits, Duke of Edinburgh residential weeks, colleges and university field studies, volunteering opportunities and work experience.
Staff and volunteers have been busy planning future projects and are excited about the possibility of creating a visitor centre and new paths around the site, as well as improving and renovating some of our existing buildings. This would enhance the experience our visitors get whilst learning about history or enjoying one of our events, and make the site more accessible to all.
We are open to the public three times a year. March, July and September. Please follow us on Facebook or see our Public Events page.
Our unique site is also available for private hire. Please contact us for more information. Due to visiting schools during the week our site is generally only available at weekends and during school holidays.
