History was brought to life at Weston Museum during half-term this week.
Youngsters gathered at the Burlington Street attraction to learn more about the Romans and pre-historic man during the museum’s History Week.
Youngsters wielded weapons and grappled with shields while wearing steel armour on Tuesday.
Monday saw children making their own Iron Age coins and designing cave paintings.
Dozens of children also had their faces painted in Iron Age war paint and dressed in the traditional tartan smocks.
