WHAT DO HERITAGE DETECTIVES DO?
Heritage Detectives go Questing - they walk in the footsteps of people who have gone before them and look for the things (the heritage) they have left behind. They listen for the stories in the stones and try to make sense of them. They are on a Quest to find things that Arthur might recognise if he were to come back today. Click to find out about Arthur.
