Project Florence

Project Florence was a Heritage Lottery-funded community engagement project which ran between June 2012 and July 2013. The aims of the project were to promote community interest in the rich archaeological heritage of South Wiltshire, to provide a range of training opportunities for local people, and to complement the work of Operation Nightingale (a military recovery initiative for injured soldiers). 
The focal point of Project Florence was the 2012 excavation of a Bronze Age burial mound and Saxon cemetery site on Salisbury Plain, known as Barrow Clump
