Youngsters got the chance to make their own clay models and cave paintings, to experience life as a caveman.

Museum curator Jenny Oxley said: “The kids who came along had a great time and really enjoyed all the hands-on activities.

“The highlights were seeing the kids’ finished cave paintings and the mini shelters they had made out of straws and plasticine.

“They really created some great designs. Staff and volunteers enjoyed dressing up as stone age characters and handling the replica stone axes.”
