An upcoming free event spurred by the discovery of historic artefacts will tell the stories of Worcestershire's heritage.

Worcestershire County Council is inviting people to ‘Go Deeper: Tales of the Past’ on Tuesday (May 28).

Celebrating the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Arts Council England-funded, multi-award-winning Roots in Time project, the event will explore the county’s past through tales based on artefacts discovered at the New Farm Nature Reserve near Evesham.

Nina O’Hare, community project officer, said: "New Farm Nature Reserve contains fascinating Roman archaeology.

"This event is a chance to immerse yourself in the lives of the people who may have made, used, and thrown away these objects – we will never know their names, but we can imagine and wonder who they were, and the stories they’d tell."

The event, set to be held at The Valley in Evesham, is geared towards adults but is also open to young people from year seven and above if attended with an adult.

Worcestershire County Councillor Karen May added: "Join our archive and archaeology team to appreciate the incredible stories hidden beneath our feet.

"It's a unique opportunity to connect with our past in a meaningful and engaging way."
