The latest exhibition at Buckingham Old Gaol is ‘Piecing Together The Past’ by the Maids Moreton Conservation Group on last year’s excavation work on the Maids Moreton Mound.

This is part of the national British Festival of Archaelogy and includes a children’s corner activity table.

Entry to the exhibition is free and it will run during normal museum opening hours (10am-4pm Monday to Saturday ) until Saturday August 15.

Summer holiday activities for children have now started. D for Dinosaur is the theme. There will be a Dino quiz around the museum and crafts on the terrace in the exercise yard.

Making a model of Dino is one of the crafts on offer and there will be a quiz prize too.

The activities will run throughout the school holidays until Wednesday September 2.

Trust and Friend members have free entry to the museum, so the only charge will be 50p for the activity.

If you are not a member (and you can join on the day) the entry fee is £3.50 for adults, £2 for children, under fives free or a family ticket is £9 (for two adults and up to three children), plus the cost of the activity.

On Sunday (July 26) Dr Susan Fern is giving an illustrated talk on the History of Roman Coins revealing the fascinating and bizarre stories depicted on the coins, and their value to archaeologists. Tickets £5 are now available from the museum shop.
