New history trails in Denbighshire are based on a popular children's TV series
Museums in Denbighshire are running new "relic trails" to encourage children to get involved with local history.
The idea is based on BBC TV series, Relic: Guardians of the Museum in which a spooky guide takes children on a tour of a museum and gets them to solve clues along the way.
And it is being run as part of the project A History of the World, a year-long partnership between the BBC and museums throughout the UK.
Now, free relic trails are being held at Ruthin Gaol, Rhyl Museum and historic hall Plas Newydd, Llangollen.
"These are fun, challenge-filled treasure hunts for families to enjoy that will help them explore objects in the museum collection," says a Denbighshire council spokesperson.
Wrexham museum has also contributed to the project, A History of the World, showcasing an early bottle of beer from the UK's oldest brewer, Wrexham Lager Beer Company, as well as other objects.
Meanwhile, Denbigh Library has offered the online project images and information about the cast of the hand of infamous explorer Henry Morton Stanley.
Other artefacts include a model of the former Rhyl Pier from 1880 and the 3,200 year old Caergwrle Bowl. Use the links (right) to find out more about local artefacts.
