A group of teenagers from Japan have been visiting places of historical interest in Norfolk as part of an exchange programme.
The Young Obsidian Ambassadors from Nagawa in Japan are linked to Thetford’s Ancient House Museum’s Teenage History Club.
The eight youngsters had tours around places including Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse and met the Mayor of Thetford, Roy Brame, and learnt about his mayoral regalia.
They have also had a sleep over at the house of a teenage history club member.
The exchange started as part of the first twinning of archaeological sites – between the Neolithic flint mines at Grime’s Graves, and the Hoshikuso Obsidian Mines near Nagawa.
