Archaeology Day is today and celebrates what Archaeology has given to the world.  At heart, Archaeology is about what we leave behind and how humans live their lives.

A picture for Archaeology Day. they are illustrations from our history of waste timeline. Three cartoon characters, a Viking solider, a Roman soldier and William Shakespeare

These are illustrations of characters from our History of Waste timeline. The Waste Education team developed a timeline showing the History of Waste in Exeter and Devon to display at Exeter’s Energy form Waste plant and for our website. It details how waste is related to history as far back as 40,000BC.
