Lynn Museum marked the end of its successful summer holiday programme with a medieval pilgrimage-themed workshop.

The drop-in session saw families handle historical items such as flasks, shoes and badges.

Children went on to make their own badges using silver foil and met costumed characters who helped to give the event an authentic feel. 

Museum learning assistant Hayley Simmons said the Discovery Thursdays programme had been popular during the summer holidays.

Other themed days had included Roman and Celts, Anglo Saxons and Vikings and the 1953 Floods.

Miss Simmons said: “The themes were inspired as part of the museum’s Journeys exhibition for the medieval period which will run until mid-next year.

“We have had lots of people coming in and also returning visitors which is always lovely to see.”
