Have you ever wished you could travel back in time? The new interactive cube, which arrived at Radstock Museum this week, will take you from a modern day photo of familiar places where you live, work or visit every day, back to the same scene from the past.

The latest exhibition, ‘Know Your Place’ tells the stories of the people who lived in the varied landscapes across the West of England – from the Miners in Radstock to Peat-cutters on the Somerset levels, Moonrakers of Devizes, to Foresters in the Forest of Dean.

Nerys Watts, Head of the Heritage Lottery Fund South West, said: “From ensuring information held in centuries-old maps is saved for future generations, to making the changing face of our region accessible at the click of a button, ‘Know Your Place’ is a fantastic partnership of organisations, communities and volunteers. Thanks to money raised by National Lottery players, we’re delighted to support this project, which is quite literally putting the West of England’s heritage on the map.”

The cube is at the museum until 24th April. For more details, visit: www.radstockmuseum.co.uk
