The uniformed organisation has partnered with some of Derbyshire’s leading archaeological sites to offer free admission to Scouts throughout the season.

Budding archaeologists will learn about excavations and the creation of Stone Age tools in some of the county’s key locations such as Arbor Low and Creswell Crags.

The Derbyshire Archaeological Adventures initiative coincides with launch of a new badge for members of the Scouting organisation, aged six to 25 years.
