Hands-on event.

Newcastle University's Museum of Antiquities will be hosting a special object-handling event for National Archaeology Day.

On Saturday, July 19, between 10am and 4pm, visitors will be able to discover how archaeologists use artefacts to learn about the lives of people in the past.

And there will be the opportunity for visitors to get their hands on a wide variety of different archaeological finds, including Roman pottery, oil lamps and replica armour.

In addition, visitors can attempt to identify mystery objects, while younger children will be able to see what people were wearing in Roman Britain almost 2000 years ago by trying on replica costumes.

The event is open to all and admission is free.
