Follow in the footsteps of our ancestors and go on the hunt for historical objects in a specially devised Relic Trail at North Lincolnshire Museum.

The Relic Trail invites children and their families to discover a number of objects in a challenge inspired by the CBBC series Relic: Guardians of the Museum.

The CBBC show, developed in partnership with the British Museum, challenges children's skills and ingenuity and the Relic Trail at the North Lincolnshire Museum in Scunthorpe is allowing people to follow a similar activity.

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.

The idea of the trail is for people to test their memory, reasoning and problem-solving skills within a set period of time.

According to Jamie Rea, an executive producer at CBBC, the trail allows families get hands-on with history:

"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.

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."

A History of the World is a partnership between the BBC, the British Museum and museums across the UK where chosen objects from local museum collections reflect world history from both a regional and global perspective.

The Relic Trail is taking place at North Lincolnshire Museum in Scunthorpe. Opening hours are Monday to Saturday, 1000 - 1600 BST and Sunday 1300 - 1600 BST.
