The Museum is delighted to announce that it will be launcing a new Young Archaeologist’s Club on 28th January 2017.

The club will provide an opportunity for children to have fun finding out about their local history and archaeology, meeting real archaeologists and craftspeople, developing new skills and making new friends in the process.

Over the year we will be exploring everything from Prehistory to the Romans, Anglo Saxons to life as an Archaeologist. Club members will take part in craft activities, archaeological digs and trips out.

Sessions will take place on the last Saturday of every month. Booking essential for each session, to confirm your place please contact the Museum on 01252 715 094 or
