Written byJORDAN DAY

Discover how craftsmen shaped the world around them years ago.

A new exhibition, called Constructing the Past, is currently being held at Ely Museum.

The exhibition is part of the Fenland Lives and Land Project from the Fens Museum Partnership.

A spokeswoman for Ely Museum, located in Market Street, said: “Discover how our early ancestors were using technology to create structures and impressive feats of engineering.

“Looking from prehistory to the medieval period, this exhibition looks at how skilled craftsmen worked with wood, metal, pottery, flint, glass, stone and earth to shape the world around them.

“It’s a great exhibition and I’d urge people to come and have a look before it goes.”

The exhibition is running until Sunday, January 26.

The museum is open everyday apart from Tuesday from 10.30am-4pm.

Entry is £3.50 for adults, £2.50 for concessions, £1 for children and free for under 5s.
