THE Museum of Farnham in West Street is delighted to announce that it will be launching a new Young Archaeologist’s Club later this month.

The club is a national based scheme run by the Council for British Archaeology. The aim is to raise awareness of archaeology and provide children with an opportunity to have fun finding out about their local history and archaeology.

The Museum of Farnham club, which kicks off on Saturday, January 28, will be a mixture of craft activities, archaeological digs and trips out, beginning with a visit from a Roman soldier, who will lead the first session.

Over the year the club will be exploring everything from prehistory to the Romans, and Anglo Saxons to life as an archaeologist.

So join the team for the launch of its new jam-packed club, make new friends, meet a Roman soldier and enjoy an afternoon of Roman inspired activities.

Roman Centurion Dan Shadrake, known for his on screen roles in Gladiator and Horrible Histories, will also be dropping in specially.

The sessions, aimed at those aged eight to 13, will take place on the last Saturday of every month from 2.30pm to 4pm. Booking is essential for each session, to confirm a place contact the museum on 01252 715094, or at [email protected].
