Children got the chance to learn about archaeology as Bucks County Museum held a Meet the Keepers event yesterday (Thursday).

Keeper of archaeology Brett Thorn showed visitors objects from some of the museum’s collections.

Visitor service manager at the museum David Erskine said: “The idea of the event was to give people the chance to get up close with some of the objects we have on display here at the museum.

“It brings the collections to life and really fires up kids imaginations.”

The displays were supported by craft activities and as a result of the event’s popularity similar sessions are planned for Wednesdays throughout August.
