An interactive ‘ Digging for Bones’ project was held at Mansfield Woodhouse Library and facilitated by the Heritage Link team, attended by more than 50 children.
Children dug up fake human remains, identified them against a full sized skeleton and learned more about other historic discoveries in Mansfield Woodhouse.
Joyce Bosnjak, chair of heritage group, said: “Fun was had by all.
“You’re welcome to visit the Heritage Project, where volunteers will be happy to chat and recall you memories of the area, enjoy the displays and look through the vast collection of photographs we have – bring yours along too.”
