A Relic Trail for families inspired by CBBC continues
History of the World
Children can use their ingenuity on the trails

Reading Museum and the Ure Museum of Greek Archaeology at the University of Reading will continue to host their relic trails due to popular demand.

At Reading Museum children can join Agatha the Tour Guide (now deceased) to take part in challenges.

The relic trails are inspired by the CBBC series Relic: Guardians of the Museum which challenges children to put their ingenuity to the test.

Children and families can also try to become 'Guardians' at Reading Museum.

The trails are free and feature objects in the museum's collection that have contributed to the BBC's A History of the World project and website.

Memory, reasoning and problem-solving are just some of the skills that families will need as they race against time to become successful Relic hunters.

"Bringing history to life was the inspiration for the CBBC series and these trails give families the chance to do just that as they discover the stories and personalities behind their local museum's collection," said Jamie Rea, Executive Producer at CBBC.

"We hope that the families taking part will not only love the challenge of completing the Relic Trails but will also learn something new about the objects they encounter."

For more information go to The Museum of Reading website or the The Ure Museum website.

History of the World

A History of the World is a partnership between the BBC, the British Museum and museums across the UK.

It is inspired by the British Museum/BBC Radio 4 series A History of the World in 100 Objects.

Museums around the country have teamed up with the BBC in their area and chosen objects from their own collections that reflect world history from both a local and global perspective.

These objects are tagged in red on the Explorer function within the website www.bbc.co.uk/ahistoryoftheworld.

Stories about these objects are being featured on radio and TV across the UK.
