  Past Explorers (a kid-friendly project of the Portable Antiquities Scheme)

This site is well worth a visit, and it offers a different view of archaeology than exists in the United States. From their site:

"This project is a voluntary scheme to record archaeological objects found by members of the public in England and Wales. Every year many thousands of objects are discovered, many of these by metal-detector users, but also by people whilst out walking, gardening or going about their daily work. Such discoveries offer an important source for understanding our past".
