Visitors defied the weather on Saturday to learn more about local life in times gone by with Dig In The Park.

Aden Country Park is currently in the midst of an archaeological dig, and the event was hosted by dig organisers to allow the public to learn more.

As well as tours of the dig sites, the event also had a number of stalls to transport people back to neolithic times.

These included how to dye using wild flora and berries, how to make rope from nettles and pottery.

There was also an opportunity to see some tracks and bones from local wildlife found during previous studies.

The Book Of Deer Project, from nearby Deer Abbey, were also in attendance to share information about their own archaeological finds and their future plans.
