Sights and sounds of times past

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

PEO­PLE got a glimpse of the past dur­ing a week­end of events with a 19th-cen­tury theme.

On Satur­day and Sun­day, Chiltern Open Air Mu­seum took vis­i­tors back in time to the days of Queen Vic­to­ria and Charles Dick­ens with its Liv­ing His­tory event.

Peo­ple were able to talk to 19th-cen­tury ‘vil­lagers’, in­clud­ing farm labour­ers, ped­lars, a toll keeper and a school mis­tress, and watch a game­keeper work­ing with his hawk.

There was a also a dis­play of mil­i­tary tech­niques and a se­ries of fam­ily fun ac­tiv­i­ties.
