VISITORS to Erewash Museum got digging for historical treasures on Saturday as part of the BBC Hands on History programme.

Hundreds of people turned out to join the fun.

Museum attendant, Chris Boyle, said: “It went really well and everyone really enjoyed themselves.

“Hopefully we’ve helped to shape some budding archaeologists and get children interested in history.”

The workshop was one of many free activities at the museum, just off Ilkeston Market Place, that will take place throughout the summer holidays. This week’s theme is space.
