Lego fans were able to trace the past through models made from the popular toy as a new summer exhibition opened in Ipswich at the weekend.
Brick History is being staged at The Hold heritage and archive centre - and runs until September 27.
Visitors are able to walk through history told imaginatively in Lego, from dinosaurs to Viking invasions, suffragettes to the space age.
Highlights include a 1.5m square medieval castle and also Lego models of Suffolk's famous landmarks - created by local people during lockdown.
Inspired by the exhibition, there will also be a series of Lego workshops - taking place on July 23 and 30, and August 6, 13, 20 and 27.
On Thursday, July 22, Lego enthusiast Andrew Webb will be leading a talk about how a single Lego brick inspired him to painstakingly create a life size replica of the famous Sutton Hoo helmet.
The impressive Lego helmet will then be placed on display in the exhibition.
