YOUNG archaeologists can discover the secrets of ancient Britain.

Fishbourne Roman Palace, near Chichester, is hosting lots of events during the February half-term which will give children the opportunity to see what it was like to live in Roman times.

From the Roman kitchen to Roman school, ancient crafts and costumes, visitors will be able to get hands-on experience of stepping back in time 2,000 years.

Activities will run from 10am to 4pm from February 13 to 16.

All activities are included in the admission price.

Visitors can also enjoy the rest of the museum, take a stroll around the replanted formal garden and view the largest collection of early mosaic floors north of Rome.

Head of learning, Suzanne Evans, said: ‘This is a great family day out with many activities to take part in and it’s an opportunity to have fun while you learn.

‘The activities are suitable for all ages and will be located inside, running throughout the day.’
