A club for children who love history and archaeology will be starting at Weston Museum after Easter.

The Rusty Club, named after the museum’s Iron Age dog skeleton, will run once a month on a Saturday morning, starting with a launch on April 7.

By becoming members, children aged eight to 16 can join in with activities such as making prehistoric-style pots and digging for dinosaur bones.

They will also go on trips to historic sites, and become a member of the Young Archaeologist Club, granting them discounts to visiting other places around the country.

Membership is £15 for six months when paid in advance, or £3 per session.

The Rusty Club will soon have a dedicated section on the museum’s website, where families can find out about upcoming sessions and information on the iron age – and Rusty himself.
