VISITORS can discover lost artefacts and learn about the people buried at Dunfermline Abbey with a day of graveyard tours and activities.

The event will run as part of Outwith Festival and will be hosted by Tombstones and Tales.

The group held similar sold-out tours last month, telling the stories of six men who helped to shape Dunfermline as it is now.

The upcoming activities, on September 9, are aimed at adults and children and will offer quill writing, table-top archaeological excavation, and a 'school of rock' where attendees can learn about the types of stone used in the graveyard from geologist Katie Strang.

There is no need to pre-book and those interested can drop in between 11am and 2pm.

There will also be the chance to view the Abbey as it looked in Victorian times and learn how visits to the landmark have changes over time.

A sketching scavenger hunt will also take place as well as a crafting activity using modelling clay to recreate grave inscriptions.

There will also be graveyard tours which must be booked and there is a maximum of 12 places on each.

They are suitable for adults and accompanied children aged nine and above.

The tours will last around 50 minutes and run every 15 minutes between 11am and 12.45pm.

Tickets are free and should be booked via the website.
