Youngsters at a village primary school were taken back in time when visitors from ancient Greece turned up at their school.

As part of a cross-curriculum project, Years 4 and 5 at Archbishop Hutton’s Primary School in Warton have been learning all about ancient Greece, and a team from Makers of History visited the school to give a workshop and show off a range of artefacts.
