Iron Age dog skeleton finally gets a new name
PUBLISHED: 17:30 16 June 2016
He may have waited around 2,600 years but an Iron Age dog skeleton has a new name thanks to four creative children.
Weston Museum ran a competition asking children to name its dog exhibit ahead of its refurbishment.
Four youngsters chose the name Rusty – and the dog will become the museum’s mascot when it reopens in 2017. The winners were Jack Morris, Joe Rossiter, Max Pester and Romany Adams-Bordon.
The museum is giving people the chance to find out more about being a volunteer on Tuesday from 9.30am-12.30 at the Badger Centre in Wadham Street. Email email@example.com to register your interest.
