THE kids break up for Half Term tomorrow, but there is no need to get panicky about how to keep little mites, and their active minds, occupied, writes Sammy Jones.

The BBC has a perfect way for kids to spend a few hours, and they’ll be soaking up history in the process.

Little archaeologists in training, and actually anyone with an interest in history, will enjoy next week’s visit by the Hands on History team.

They are visiting Middleton Hall to support the new BBC Two series, A History of Ancient Britain and will be bringing Stonehenge with them...sort of!

Children and their parents will be asked to help solve the mystery of how the ancient monument was moved.

Pay a visit and you will also get the opportunity to learn about life as an ancient Briton via a timeline trail covering the three millennia BC...

Discovering the secrets of Stonehenge is free to attend too.

Perfect family fun.

Once you get back home you can catch up with this chap on the right – he is Eric Stoneage, the mini-time traveller and you’ll find him on the Hands on History website.

Settle back and join him on his travels to mysterious times long, long ago...

The Ancients are Coming will park up in thecentre:mk between 11am and 4pm on Tuesday.
