YOUNG historians-in-the-making let their imaginations run riot at a special event in Arundel.
An impressive 72 children took part in the Hands-on History day, organised by the Arundel Museum, last Wednesday.
The event was held near the medieval ruins of Blackfriars Priory, in the Jubilee gardens.
Children had the chance to take part in a number of craft activities in the blissful summer sun.
The youngsters created everything from lavender bags to Roman lamps and even some coil pots. They children were taught about Roman writing and learned a few facts about specialised runes with some even dressing as Roman soldiers.
Pauline Carder, chairman of the Arundel Museum Society, said the event had been a rousing success. She admitted that the society was very impressed by the turnout on the day.
“We had 72 children throughout the day and everyone had a whale of a time,” she said. “It was a beautiful day and all the children and their parents were very happy.”
