A Roman army marched through Weston’s museum last week, as part of a series of half-term activities.

The museum, in Burlington Street, organised its history week events to give children a taste of what life was like in a number of eras, starting with the Romans.

Re-enactors wore Roman tunics and helmets and showed the youngsters replica artefacts.

On February 14, visitors took a trip through time to the Middle Ages, exploring medieval armour and watching how clothes were woven.

On Friday, people learned about World War One and World War Two, where they discovered more about the weapons used and life on the home front.

The events were free, but a number of other bookable activities also took place, giving children an insight into the Vikings and the Victorians.
