A ROYSTON teenager got the chance to chat to Sir David Attenborough at a lecture in Cambridge.

Archaeology student James Dilley, 18, met the legendary television presenter after being invited by the Cambridge Anthropology and Archaeology Museum to attend a lecture given by Sir David at the Babbage Lecture Theatre, Cambridge.

Clive Dilley, James father, said: "James was lucky enough to speak with Sir David for around 10 minutes. James then presented Sir David with a flint hand-axe that he had made especially for the occasion."

James is a well known face in Royston, and organises the annual archaeology family fun day at Royston museum, and is assistant at the Royston & District Time Trackers club.
