Mint wall

There will be something for all ages as The Collection museum returns with its 'Festival of Archaeology' this weekend.

The event, which runs from Saturday 17 July to Sunday 1 August, is in its third year.

“It is an event for everybody to discover the stories, sites and people that make our Lincolnshire local communities so very special,” said Anita Fox, learning manager, who is organising the festival.

"Our festival includes stories from across the county brought to you by film, live lunchtime talks, displays of local projects, tours and talks and children's activities.

"This year we are launching two amazing new projects – Collection Virtual, where you can take a virtual tour of the museum archaeology gallery and collections, and  Hidden Lindum Colonia (Roman Lincoln) – an amazing trail between the Collection Museum and Lincoln Castle area, so visitors can see what buildings would have looked like in Roman times.

"It is set to be a brilliant festival – a real celebration of Lincolnshire communities enabling residents to explore our wonderful local places."
