The Relic Trail is inspired by the CBBC series

The Harris Museum & Art Gallery in Preston has created a Relic Trail to celebrate A History of the World.

The Relic Trail is inspired by the CBBC series Relic: Guardians of the Museum.

The CBBC show, developed in partnership with the British Museum, challenges children to put their skill and ingenuity to the test.

The Relic Trail allows families to do exactly the same thing on their journey through the museum in Preston - for free!

The trail features objects in the museums' collections that have contributed to the BBC's A History of the World project and website.

Race against time

What are inros? Where are the Vikings from? Who was teetotal? And how do you keep the Ancient Egyptians in check? All this and more will be revealed.

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

Jamie Rea, Executive Producer at CBBC says: "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

A History of the World is about how objects in museums and galleries can tell local and global stories and engage everyone with history in new ways.

It is a public service partnership between the BBC and the British Museum. The aim is to create a digital museum with objects from across the UK.
