YOUNGSTERS can step back in time to the Iron Age during a series of half-term activities.

From Tuesday, October 26, at Kirkleatham Museum, Redcar, activities have been organised with an Iron Age theme.

The event has been organised by Redcar and Cleveland Council's museums and countryside service, Tees Archaeology, and the Summerhill visitors' centre.

On Tuesday, families are invited to join a workshop and find out what the difference is between a Celt and a Roman.

On Wednesday, October 27, there is the chance to make a helmet. You can make a sword on the Thursday and a mini-warrior on the Friday.

The sessions are from 10am to 12pm, and 1pm to 4pm. All activities are free. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Contact the museum on (01642) 479500.
