Film cameras captured moments in time in a way that today’s digital imaging has forgotten.

Join us for a special exhibition at DIG, looking through the archaeologist’s camera lens, as we delve into York Archaeological Trust’s archives to reveal a series of images from key excavations that began to uncover York’s Roman past…

Explore how photography has changed in the last 50 years, including stories from past and present photographers; displays of the camera equipment used to capture history, as it was uncovered; and examples of modern photographic techniques.

A fantastic experience for camera enthusiasts and history lovers.
