Children and their parents stepped back in time at the weekend during a Medieval Day at Ely Museum.
Throughout the day there was the chance to meet craft folks, have a go at dressing up, medieval art and games.
The day started with a medieval parade through the city, then there was the chance to learn about and taste medieval food with Ann Jarman from The Old Fire Engine House restaurant.
Local author Marc Grimston read stories before armour and fire power talks and demonstrations ended the day.
A museum spokesman said: “Fantastic medieval day with the Bonivant household. “Thank you so much to The Medieval Siege Society for bringing the 15th century alive at Ely Museum this weekend. We’d welcome you back anytime.
“To our visitors who made it amazing and fun, remember to hold on to your tickets as all tickets are valid for a year so we will see you again soon.”
There was also a crime and punishment re-enactment session in the afternoon.
