THE Museum of Farnham’s new Young Archeologists’ Club was a huge success, as visitors delved deep into the history of the Roman Empire at its launch last Saturday.

The year-long nationwide scheme, run by the Council for British Archaeology, will take children on an archaeological journey covering everything from prehistory to the Romans and Anglo Saxons, and life as an archaeologist.

This makes for the perfect history class as club members take a step back in time, studying the town’s history through the excavation of sites and the analysis of artefacts – as well as taking part in traditional craft workshops.

“We think the launch went very well, we’ve had positive feedback and the Roman soldier seemed to go down very well,” commented Emma Sutcliffe, assistant curator at the Museum of Farnham.

The monthly club is aimed at those between the ages of eight and 13 years old, and takes place on the last Saturday of every month from 2.30pm to 4pm. For more information or to book a place, call the museum on 01252 715094, or email [email protected].
