Inspired by our summer exhibition looking at the remains of soldiers captured at the 1650 Battle of Dunbar and marched south by Oliver Cromwell as prisoners of war. Many of them died along the way and were found buried in Durham.

How did they know these skeletons were prisoners of war from Dunbar?  We'll have a look at some of the techniques scientists and archaeologists use to identify remains.  Suitable for ages 8-14. £12.15 each. Call in to Dunbar Town House or phone 01620 820699 to book.

 

Time: Thur 8 August 9.45 - 12.45pm.
