A NEW group is being set up at the Royston & District Museum for young people to explore the history of the area.
The group, the Royston Time Trackers, will give youngsters between 8-16 years to explore objects, building and history.
An introductory meeting will be taking place at the museum in Kneesworth Street on Saturday, April 28 at 11am.
The project will be introduced by local archaeologist Sylvia Beamon and young archaeologist James Dilley and his father, Clive Dilley.
Both James and Clive have provided the inspiration behind the archaeological days at the museum in recent years.
Youngsters will have the chance to handle objects from the museum's collection.
