Volunteer Event

Monday 25 November: Collections in Focus talk

Times 10.30am-12pm

Simon Cleggett, from Wessex Archaeology, will be giving a fascinating talk entitled ‘Wonderful things: the army basing programme and the Stonehenge Landscape’. This is a repeat of the wonderful talk that Simon gave at this year’s Festival of Archaeology.  For five years, Wessex Archaeology has excavated Bulford, Larkhill and Tidworth in preparation for the Army Basing Programme. International media has followed the discovery of henges, a causewayed enclosure, Neolithic pits, prehistoric burials, Anglo Saxon burial grounds, a WWI practice battlefield and WWII anti-tank devices. Simon’s talk details the revelation of some truly wonderful things.

There is no need to RSVP for either the above talk. Please just turn up on the day.

I recall the excited reaction of those who attended this talk at ArchFest in July. A brilliant speaker and thoughtful and sensitive archaeologist… If you didn’t hear Simon speak then, grab this opportunity next month.
