•Be a budding archaeologist
•Paint your own leather flying patch.

The Eighth in the East project team and partners will be on hand throughout the day to tell you more about our work and let you know how you can become involved in developing this precious piece of history for the future. The day focuses on family activities but we are also keen to see people who remember the Americans in our region or who have an interest in this special period of our shared past.
So come along, bring your children, have fun and discover more about the rich history that lives on your doorstep.
