    This is quite hard tbh:

    1. Travel/ holiday to visit archaeological or other places of related interest.
    2. Join your local unis classics society if they have one and maybe get involved in a play or dig.
    3. Ask for work experience at the classics department of your local uni.
    4. Museums.
    5. just read some interesting articles or get published in the school mag.

    I wouldnt worry about it too much.

    Go read a book in the library and visit a museum.

    I missed off summer school. If you have a local classics department then ask if they take work shadowing or they are running anything. Also look for any local exhibitions or any that you can travel to or any plays. Its not essential by any means but it can make your application more interesting.

    There should also be lots of classics related websites where you can catch up on the archaeological aspects.
